I'm using Gnome desktop environment on Debian 9.5, my laptop is Acer Aspire V5 series.
I usually cycle through three keyboard languages during the day: English, Italian and Spanish. The first two layouts work perfectly, but just today I realize that the Spanish layout is giving me quotation marks when it should give me accented characters. For instance:
' then e, should produce " é ", but it is giving me " ´e " instead.
I've been using this version of Debian and Gnome Desktop since a year ago, and I never had this problem before. This week I had an
apt upgrade of the system, so I suspect that action unleashed the problem. I wonder if it is a bug of the latest updated software or maybe that the firmware of my keyboard needs to be updated.
Please, if there is anyone out there having the same problem I would like some hints on how can it be fixed.
This fellow had the same problem two years ago, but unfortunately his question was never answered: Accented characters stopped working on French Canadian keyboard.
