In Suse 9.0 (KDE 3.1, as I recall), there was a choice between English 
UK keyboard layout, and English US keyboard layout. There even was an 
applet which made it possible to change the choice on the fly. 
Difference between them was that the US kb had the so-called 'dead 
keys', to easily type diacritics. You simply typed the accent, and after 
that the character that had to be accented. In Suse 9.1, KDE 3.2, it 
isn't there anymore,  and I don't know where to configure it. If that's 
at all possible... Choosing a German keyboard doesn't help, because the 
layout differs too much from my Acer Aspire 1711SCI.

Anyone any idea? Thanks in advance!

kind greetings, Jogchum Reitsma
