As suggested by Philip Rodrigues you might want to have a look at the US 
internation keyboard layout (us_intl) [1]. Also with KDE it is possible to 
assign a keyboard shortcut to switch to the next keyboard on the list of 
active layouts that can be specified under Keyboard Layout in the KDE control 
center. That would make it very easy to make the switch whenever you need to.
