When I need to type or work with French & German I set the keyboard layout
variant in kde keyboard config as "International (with dead keys)" This works
exactly like you describe for all accented characters. This way I keep my own
en_GB/UK keyboard layout and have all the accented characters I need.
This layout variant is available for US layout also.
é is: apostrophe -> e
' is: apostrophe -> space
ö is: double quote -> o
" is: " -> space
ô is: circumflex -> o
^ is: ^ -> space
