Hi Stefan,



la 11/17/2009 11:22 PM Stefan Monnier skribis:
** Dead-key and composite character processing is done in the standard
X11R6 manner (through the default "input method" using the
/usr/lib/X11/locale/*/Compose databases of key combinations).  I.e. if
it works in xterm, it should also work in Emacs now.
This has long since stopped working.
    

I don't use dead keys, but I use the compose key extensively, and it
works just fine in my Emacs.  Can you give more detail to try and
reproduce your problem?
  
what details, I don't really know.  It might be Ubuntu specific, because it appeared long ago when I switched from SuSE to Ubuntu.  At the time I figured it must have to do with a newer Emacs, because xterm and all Gtk and Qt apps had and have no problem.  Sorry I didn't report it then, I guess this is two years back.

I think compose is not pertinent, because IMHO that does the combining in the X-server and sends the combined char, as though you had a key for it, like German äöüß is no problem even without loading iso-transl.

I'm attaching my very personal keymap (which covers my normal German external keyboard, the built in American one, with Z and Y switched German style and Esperanto letters).  I've stuffed in all dead-keys, like AltGr-, for cedilla,  AltGr-Shift-, for ogonek and AltGr-^ for circumflex.  I load it with xkbcomp -xkb .X/keymap/daniel $DISPLAY, but you could just as well just set one dead key with xmodmap IIRC.
