Bonjour Jean-Christophe,

i do not know how french-prefix works, but here is a method.

If you are using a japanese keyboard, a very simple way to type french accents
is to use the Canadian layout, which is QWERTY but has the french accents in on
convenient keys (actually much more convenient than the terrible AZERTY layout
in France).


I use Xorg to switch between the Japanese and Canadian layouts by pressing
on both shift keys. The following command sets this up:

setxkbmap -layout "us,ca" -variant ",multi" -option grp:shifts_toggle

Bonne chance !
