I use several keyboards layouts on a regular basis. Two of which make use of dead keys for French language.
$ cat /etc/default/keyboard XKBLAYOUT=us,fr,fr XKBVARIANT=dvp,bepo,latin9 BACKSPACE=guess
This morning, after a
sudo apt-get upgrade on Debian 9 (stretch), which may or may not be involved in the problem, dead keys stopped working as dead keys (i.e. hitting
^e instead of
ê), which makes typing french quite difficult.
The new behaviour is persistent after reboot and affects several applications:
But not VLC or xterm.. what should I conclude?
How do I get my dead keys working again in all applications?
