[gedit-list] xmodmap, German umlaut, diaeresis

Hello all.

I want to type German umlauts using the Meta keys on a US keyboard (Sun Type 7).
I created an xmodmap file "umlauts" with the following content:
keysym Meta_L = Mode_switch Mode_switch
keysym Meta_R = Mode_switch Mode_switch

keysym a = a A adiaeresis Adiaeresis
keysym e = e E ediaeresis Ediaeresis
keysym i = i I idiaeresis Idiaeresis
keysym o = o O odiaeresis Odiaeresis
keysym u = u U udiaeresis Udiaeresis
keysym y = y Y ydiaeresis Y
keysym s = s S ssharp NoSymbol

! for recognition of the umlaut setting with a grep on "xmodmap -pke":
keycode 250 = U M L 1
The call "xmodmap umlauts" makes German umlauts available instantaneously in
OpenOffice, Firefox, and other applications, but not in gedit.

Oracle Solaris 11.1 with gedit 2.30.4 running
ubuntu 12.04 LTS (in VirtualBox) with gedit 3.4.1 running
both concerned.

How can I accomplish gedit accept these xmodmap settings?

Btw., copying umlauts into gedit (e.g. from Firefox) is possible.

Any help appreciated
