Hi to everyone,
My question is clear enough and I hope I have posted it to the right forum.
More precisely, I have installed a Debian distro on my PC and an Ubuntu distro on my Laptop and uses a "US International"layout while typing in English or in French.
However, the only thing I couldn't find until now is the French "ç" (Cé cédille) short key . Did anyone had the same problem and solved it?

I have a special quicklaunch shortcut on my openSUSE/Gnome's taskbar where I can put all the special letters I need (œ, å, æ, etc. and Çicon_smile.gif).

What I forgot to mention is that the shortcut should be : right Alt key+ "C"key do work on Windows but not on Linux. Also, I have installed this quicklaunch on my taskbar, but somehow it doesnt work with Open Office. Am I missing something?

Ç - [right alt] + <
ç - [right alt] + ,

same as Microsoft US International according to:

To change keyboards:

Gnome:

Right mouse click on your main Gnome tray
Select "Add to Panel"
Select "Keyboard Indicator"
Right mouse click on applet created in main Gnome tray
(or just go to: System>Preferences>Keyboard)
Select "Keyboard Preferences"
Select "Layouts"
Click "Add"
In left-hand window select Language
Close "Keyboard Preferences"
Click on applet


On KDE (if it is still the same as some time ago):

Main Menu>Control Center>Regional & Accessibility> Keyboard Layout

Check "Enable keyboard layouts", add the languages you require and then click "Apply".

You should get an icon (it has a country flag as a background) in your main tray which you can click to change language.

On KDE you can also give a key combination to change the keyboard; on Gnome you may have to edit your XFree86 or Xorg configuration.

I have é and è.

However ^o.

I think I will have to make a custom keyboard for the rest.

In fact there are some options for toggling keyboards on Gnome under "Keyboard Preferences".

Keyboard Preferences>Layout Options

and click on arrow beside Group Shift/Lock behaviour. I found mine was set to "Both Alt keys together".
