I've recently switched from Windows to Ubuntu 11.04, and a difference that bugs me a bit is, when a dead key (such as
´) is pressed twice, the behavior differs in the two OS'es.
On Windows, the first press is dead, but the second press gives you two characters. So, for instance, pressing
¨ once nets you nothing, but twice nets you
On Ubuntu, the first press is also dead, but the second press only nets you one character. So, pressing
¨ once nets you nothing, twice nets you
What I'd like to do is make dead keys function as on Windows, that is, pressing them twice nets you the character two times.
I do not wish to make them non-dead, as I then wouldn't be able to write for ü, for instance.
Is such a thing possible, and if so, how?
