There are some days that I am using Oss 13.2 with KDE3, thinking it will be definitively adopted. It was OK until this mornig. For an unknown reason, I can not enter metacharacters like é but not ç or ¿. And only the specifical to KDE3 softwares like Kate, Konqueror, KMail and others. There is no problem with the other software like Firefox, Chrome, Gimp and so on. I spend most of my time editing with Kate, which means that I nead this feature.
It looks like KDE3 "could no longer" handle dead keys. I use a spanich keyboard where "e" with accent (like "`" or "´") are composed with a depress on a dead key before pressing the "e" key. From "Keyboard layout" from KControl, I tryed the french one : the problem of the dead keys is identical.
I only installed the last version of Xampp yesturday. So, I tryed not to start the servers, but without success.
I removed IBus with help of Yast, which forced the removing of a lot of Gnome softwares. But it did not solved anything.
Does someone can help me saying in which direction I should look to solve this problem, please ?
Thank you for the attention you paid to this mail. Patrick
I am looking in the X direction, but it looks huge !
