You're not kidding. swapping between win7 (uk international keyboard, which I find excellent) and here I'm breaking my fingers. It's nearly as bad as using an azerty.
If you give me a workable tool to make a clone of the superior windows version (do I get expelled now?), I will do it and make it available I promise
It's really sad that most programmers (and, in fact, most unilingual people) don't understand how much dead keys and compose keys break one's flow of thought. I tried to use the System Setting's key bindings to get stuff like alt-a --> ä, but no go. Those key bindings only bind keystrokes to commands. *sigh*
My UK keyboard mapped as UK with dead keys works fine to generate portuguese charaters... except ć which should be ç ... to get around e have configured 2 distinct layouts when a simple key change in that mapping would work best. Believe there more people in similar situations.
I absolutely agree with this good idea
