Any tips on getting your US keyboard to make accent marks in linux? US exceptionalism is ingrained in our culture all the way down to the keyboards we use to type!


I finally installed the ibus package, ran `ibus-setup` and deleted all keyboards except: US (intl., with AltGr deadkeys). I guess something has to die before I can type an accent mark. There must be an easier way.

@jamiem I added the English (US, intl., with dead keys) keyboard under settings, region and language. Not perfect but usable for Spanish/English.

@Matt_Noyes Thanks. I'm sorting this out for myself (not on Gnome) and also for a colleague (on Gnome). I couldn't find that setting in Gnome - but of course should have looked in Region.
