Summary: can't type accented characters in certain apps
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: GNOME
AssignedTo: bnc-team-gnome@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Since upgrading to 10.2, I've been unable to type accents in gnome apps, or
firefox. However, I can type them in xterm and emacs.

I enabled them by going Computer -> Control Center -> Keyboard -> Layout
Options. Expand Compose key position, set Right Alt is Compose.

Then, to type a with an acute accent, hit Right Alt ' (that's an apostrophe /
single-quote), then a.

This is a pretty vanilla 10.2 installation, and it wasn't an upgrade, so there
are no leftover weird X or GNOME settings from the past.
