With my Swiss french keyboard, set to Swiss-French- no dead keys, when I type ^ o together they are presented as ^o rather than ô. Same with ^etre rather than être, etc.
Can anyone help me solve this.
Husse, Problem solved.
The clue is in my initial posting, see above, ignorant of the "no dead keys" meaning I chose this. Reading the Wiki Keyboard settings info I am now wiser and have selected Swiss-French - dead keys. Lo and behold, problem solved - my dead keys now work.
Am writing out "engage brain before getting out of bed" 500 times and offer profuse apologies! êêêôôô.
However I am not currently able to use Linux (see my post "Thunderbird unusable under Linux") as my incoming mail gets hijacked. This does not happen under WinXP and for peace of mind I'm using that OS until I can find out what's going on.
