    Question Keyboard : missing accent keys


    Hello,

    I installed a Mandriva 2009 on an Asus Eee pc (model 900).
    Keyboard is a UK layout with some accent keys.
    However I cannot obtain display of these accents. Whatever mixed keys (Alt ..etc..) I tried.

    Thanks for any help or clue.

    Bye,
    Bruno

    Use the character map.
    Look in Applications/Text Tools under KDE/Gnome.

    Hello,

    so I found kcharselect under my KDE application-tools menu.
    It seems to allows picking a character with accent but as a one-shot operation via a virtual keyboard.

    But how to setup the keyboard itself in a permanent way ?
    Meaning Alt-e returns e with accent.
    The Xandros Linux installed originally on the Asus gave the correct keys.

    Thanks for attention.

    Bye,
    Bruno
