I have two debian boxes and unable to get accented characters to work. I am
attempting to do this via:
xmodmap -e "keycode 117 = Multi_key"
On machine one it works perfectly. I can multi-key my accented characters to
my hearts content.
On machine two it goes into multi_key mode, in that I can type the sequcen,
but no character is displayed.
However, if I ssh from machine two to machine one and type a multi_key
sequence then it shows the accented characters.
I've tried a few different things. I've searched google, I've diff'ed the
list of packages installed on the two machines. But I'm still not seeing what
the significant difference is.
Anyone have ideas?
