IIRC, a specific bug (394871) is still open about deadkeys not working, but i cannot verify by myself if deadkeys now work, as i don't have the necessary knowledge

Choose french keymap
go to a place where you can test the input
Hit the key right to "p" and then a "e" --> you should get a ê

So far i have the following test cases

* fr-latin9
- "[" then "vowel" gives "^ vowel" : thats true for all vowels except "a"
- "AltGr" + "vowel" gives "^ vowel" : thats true for all vowels except "a" and "e" (the former key combination gives "^q", the latter an uninteligible symbol)

* br-latin1
- "'" then "vowel" gives "^ vowel" : thats true for all vowels
- Apparently there seem to be no AltGr + vowel valid combination here

this should be enough for now to do some testing.

Yesterday dok provided a link to a page where i may find some interesting informations about how to make deadkeys work under dfb.

I quoted a commit log from May 5th which says that dead key handling
has been implemented. Which version are you using?

We're using DFB 0.9.25, and comparing diff from cvs [1] and changelog for directfb in debian [2] makes me think we'll need a backport. I'll take care of that and see if we can manage deadkeys this way; in the case i should succeed i'll prepare a patchfile for guillem (cc'ed) to apply, given we still make it in time. I'll do my best to get deadkeys working, this is ATM the most annoying bug left in g-i (apart, i think, pixelformat rgba 6/0, 6/0, 6/0, 0/0 not being supported, but IIRC you gave us some hints to fix this some weeks ago).
