I have a system76 computer with a standard system76 layout.

I use Portuguese accents all the time, so I need quick access to them. Typically, I use US international keyboard with dead keys. Hence, to make for instance á, I type '+a. I had this working on my Ubuntu 14.04, however after upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04, it stopped working on all applications, except bash for some reason.

I have the following outputs

    > gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.input-sources sources
    [('xkb', 'us+intl')]
    > gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.input-sources current
    uint32 0

Any thoughts? Thanks!

Possibly you have XIM enabled as input method, and run into bug #1573755. If so, try to open Language Support, change to "IBus" as input method, and relogin.

Edit:

Since the above idea didn't work, you may want to check which is your currently selected keyboard layout by running these commands:

gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.input-sources sources
gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.input-sources current

  • Thanks, but unfortunately it's IBus already – madness Aug 9 '16 at 15:30
  • @madness: Hmm.. Then can you try with "none"? – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Aug 9 '16 at 15:37
  • Doesn't work either :( – madness Aug 9 '16 at 22:47
  • @madness: I just edited my (attempt at an) answer. Can you please run those two commands in a terminal window, and let us know what they output. – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Aug 9 '16 at 23:26
  • I've updated my question with this info – madness Aug 10 '16 at 13:13
