    Hi!

    I use Antix 19 on a HP Elitebook 2530p. I have a problem with writing an “é” (or any other letter with an accent). If I press the key usually used to do that – which waits for you to add the letter you want the accent attached to) I immediately get the resultat “´” – so the only possible result when adding a letter is “´e” and not “é”.

    I have tried changing the keyboard layout but it seems to follow any layout I choose. It follows all program I use too.

    I use Swedish as the language connected to the keyboard, but English_GB as the language in Locale. Don´t know if this has any relevance at all.

    /Rikard

    UPDATE: Same problem with “¨” and “^”. Will not be on top of letters.

    Don’t know how the accents work on a Swedish keyboard, but for my Greek one I have to use a ; before the vowel eg έ

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    No, generally these key would be silent the first time you press them, and then add the accent when you press the next letter. I will continue to try different things. Don´t need that function right now.

    SOLVED

    I had to set the composition key (now set to the menu-key). You usually don´t need to do that on other distributions. That is why I was confused first.
