Hi everyone! I'm new to this list but I need to ask (what I hope is!) a
simple question. Presently I'm running a RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)
"clone" called CentOS 4.3 (the version corresponds to the same version
as RedHat's product). When I installed the OS, I installed with the
GNOME Desktop option.
I am so proud of how far GNOME has come! (I've been using RedHat since
4.3, though I had to dual boot with Windows for some time due to lack of
word processing apps, etc.) I now use Linux (and have been using it)
exclusively without needing Windows at all! My system is very stable
and I have no problems with its functionality. When system boots, gdm
takes over display and auto logs in (after a few seconds) a "general"
user (though I have an account of my own).
What I'm having problems with is with the "Keyboard Indicator" applet:
I need to use a keyboard that has accents (for Spanish work) and I added
the applet to a panel to be able to change to the appropriate keyboard.
I managed to add a Spanish layout from the list. I can even switch to
the layout and the "dead keys" work. But when I type the letter after
the dead key, it appears unaccented. The keyboard layout (in the applet
list) is called "Spanish Sun dead keys".
What's really strange is that the keyboard layout called "U.S. English
International (with dead keys)" does provide letters with accents (using
the appropriate dead keys). Can anyone tell me how I might get a
Spanish keyboard layout that works (I'm kinda used to using the actual
"Spanish" layout in a "Spanish" keyboard)? Anyone has any
ideas/explanations? Thanks so much.
