Hello all,

I have a openSuse10.3 using US-language locales with a German keyboard. I would like to be able to write French accents with this keyboard but I do not know how to figure this out with firefox and open office.

I have set up nodeadkeys in the Regional settings of KDE and I added furthermore this in the yast/sax2 keyboard settings. In the sax2 testfield the accents work nicely, as well as in konqueror. But as soon as I use Firefox or OpenOffice these accents don't work at all.

Someone knows about this problem? Do I have to change to German locales for the Linux system?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Peter
