I made an upgrade from kde 3.0.x to 3.1 and now I have no dead keys in mozilla. The relevant libs installed during the kde upgrade that I can think of are: qt3.1, gtk2.0 and glibc2.3.2. I also have a mozilla 1.3 installed and the problem also occurs. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Just open the composer (or in the navigator). 2. Write a dead key like á,à,é. Actual Results: I would see ´a,`a,´e Expected Results: á,à,é.
Are you using a gtk2 mozilla build?
what do you see when you enter: about:buildconfig in the browser urlbar?
I don't really know if it is a gtk2 build. I got it from mozilla.org -> Donwloads -> Mozilla 1.4a -> x86 tar.gz.

That's a standard build. Dead keys should work there.
After the initial instalation it was fine. After the upgrade I've noticed that problem. No matter what I do now (I've installed every linux version in the mozzila.org page) I can't get the dead keys to work again. I don't event know what are the libs used by mozilla and which one is causing the problem.
Here's a silly question. Do dead keys work in other applications?
Of course! I have dead keys in all of the following application: Kde (all k applications) OpenOffice Java-based applications (Netbeans, etc...) Many X applications like XCDRoast, etc. Opera browser (i'm using it now and I can type á à ã â :). Even in galleon (mozilla-based browser) I have dead-keys. It is really strange.
Yeah, that is odd. I don't know what you tell you.
Just an aditional note. I also don't have dead keys in netscape. That makes sense as it is mozilla-based. Is there any qt-based build or a static linked (gtk2) version that I can try? Maybe there is some kind of conflict with these new libs that I've installed when I made the kde upgrade (using the apt-get tool).
Netscape 4.x? Or Netscape 7.x?
Are you starting these browsers up with command line arguments?
No. I'm calling mozilla without arguments.
I found that this bug is already reported (see Bug 182229). The problem seems to be the LANG enviroment variable. If it is defined to UTF-8 the dead keys don't work (LANG=pt_PT.UTF-8) But setting it to pt_PT will solve the problem.
