just two remarks:
first of all, OpenOffice, will not accept dead-key if the locale is set to
POSIX or C (fr_FR for instance is ok). Even if you can see them in xev and
produce accented character in gvim...
then i'm not sure if your config is consistent since I don't have any us_intl in
Once you made your modification, did you try running xev, to see if you effectively
receive dead_* event:
KeyRelease event, serial 23, synthetic NO, window 0x3800001,
root 0x48, subw 0x0, time 573282316, (88,128), root:(576,152),
state 0x2000, keycode 94 (keysym 0xfe50, dead_grave), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 1 bytes: "`"
There have been several proposition of symbols definition on this list. you can have a
look to the archive. Modifying or creating a file in /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/macintosh is
relatively easy and straightforward, and you can have the exact layout you want for all
