Re: Dead keys
No in woody they do not work either. I have seen that there is a bug
report on this upstream at kde.bugs.org. At the Mandrake distribution,
they had the same problem and I read at some list (but where?) that it was
related to some problem in the qt-lib and advised to upgrade the
library. But the qt-ibrary at debian seems to be even newer. I compiled
konsole from source (but using the packaged libraries) to no effect.
