I use the "English (International AltGr dead keys)" layout, I've found it easier for entering the characters I need. Using the right Alt key as AltGr, AltGr+vowels gives me accents, AltGr+< gives me the cedilla (ç). It's not exactly "dead keys" as there's no "standby accent" but it works.

I don't know about that file you mentioned, but as you will not need this special c very often I suppose, maybe using the screen keyboard would be enough? I think it's called onboard.

I found here that using: shift+f10 opens the context menu. I know it's not the best solution but I thought it could help for temporary use! P.S: I have e530c too, and I tested this on Debian 7 (Wheezy).

I tried this in terminal: $ setxkbmap biblicalSIL Error loading new keyboard description It indicates that the layout is buggy, which might be the reason why it does not show up in the GUI. If you install the ibus-m17n package (and re-login), you get access to the Hebrew (kbd (m17n)) layout. I have no idea if that would help you, though. ;)
