Making dead-keys from us_intl layout work with all characters?
I recently switched my keyboard layout from us to us_intl, as
I need accents (previously, I used accents on Emacs only, but
that was too limiting).
The problem that I see is that whenever I press a dead-key
(like tilde), the only keys that generate a symbol after that
are the letters that should be accented.
This is more limiting than what I would expect, since the
combination ~/ is quite common for shells, for instance (but
not only this combination).
Emacs' own iso-accents-mode does what I would like to achieve
(that is, generates a double char sequence after I type 't),
instead of eating both characters. :-(
So, is there any way to achieve what I want? I already looked
at /usr/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/us_intl with the intention of
modifying it, but the file left me the impression that the X
server can not generate two characters after one keypress. Is
What is the appropriate way to change the behaviour to be what
