¡Hóla! ¡Y Bienvenido! I know just about enough Spanish to be able to read it and get the meaning, though I miss a word here and there, but not enough to write or speak the language. Con respecto a la acentuatión, there are different keyboard layouts, several in Spanish, or the one I use, which is English (international AltGr dead keys). I don't know which desktop you are using, but in Cinnamon, you can select Menu->Preferences->Keyboard->Layouts, then click on the "+" button to add the keyboard you want. Also, there is a Spanish sub-forum, though you will likely get a quicker answer to your questions on the main forum.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they ain't.

Thanks, very useful advises. I will explore the settings and the Spanish forum.

Many thanks, Iam trying to do the transition to a free software, so I have a lot to learn. I starting to use Libre Office, but I agree that is worth it.
