I’m having trouble typing certain special Portuguese characters in Ubuntu MATE 16.04 LTS. I’m running it live from an USB pendrive, before I finally install it, but unfortunately I really need correct orthography and so I can’t ignore this issue.
I’ve already tried changing my Keyboard Layout to Portuguese (Brazil), I’ve tried changing the system’s language settings for Portuguese (and I’ve also tried enabling/disabling the different keyboard input methods such as fcitx, iBus and XIM). It seems it doesn’t matter what I do, I can’t type the characters that would require either using a dead key or the compose key (oh, I’ve also tried changing the compose key settings, that too wouldn’t work).
The end result looks like this: “~a” instead of “ã”, “´e” instead of “é”, and so on. What should I do?
Thanks in advance!
