- I have a UK keyboard, so UK-English layout
- Need to type Portuguese and German characters (e.g. á, ã, ä...)
- Don't want to buy a new keyboard
- Don't want to change keyboard layout (standard Ubuntu functionality)
- Why not? Because I don't want to constantly "try to remember" where each key is; I most definitely don't want to print a layout map either!
- I want to press 'A and get
'awhen language is English or German and
áwhen Portuguese; currently, to get
áin Portuguese I need to press [A
- This is possible/standard in Windows since 98 (to my knowledge)
- I'm aware of the following question, but it didn't help me: How to use an input language different from the keyboard layout country and from the system language?
- Why not? Because it suggests to change the keyboard layout, which is what I strictly want to avoid
So is it possible to achieve different outputs while maintaining the underlying keyboard layout (to match its physical layout)?
