Sub_title: acute accent followed by C = Ç

Who uses international keyboard suffers some difficulty to typing Çç on Puppy, Slackware and maybe others.

Xorg.conf line XkbVariant "intl" makes ç with ALT + comma and c (on Abiword, Seamonkey and etc.). This is not a natural way.

The natural way in Brazil is acute accent followed by c.
At /etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules include <en> on abbreviated languages series at line that begins with "cedilla" ... as gtk+.sh ...

This is. From Brazil.

the most natural way for me is to use the CH-keyboard!

it offers °'^`~" independant from aeiouy and usable on each of them (minuscule or majuscule)
and éüàäöüç complete with the accent or cedilla
only the german ss is not available. germanophone swiss people seems don't to use it!

the CH-keyboard has 2 variants: fr and de but all the signs are the same

but the CH-keyboard is only available in Puppy using the dotpup for international keyboard

this keyboard don't work properly any more (since about puppy 2.10). at installation time you have the chance to start it and choice CH fr or CH de, but after that it is not possible to change again (in Puppy 2.02, you can change daily or more). but it is not a big problem: CH is the most complete keyboard and it works very properly in puppy 3.0 beta

First turned my abnt2 into us-intl... just putting labels on some keys.

1) system is US English and ISO88591
2) in xorg.conf
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc102" #xkbmodel0
Option "XkbLayout" "us" #xkeymap0
Option "XkbVariant" "intl" #xkbvariant0
3) /etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules
"cedilla" "Cedilla" "gtk20" "/usr/share/locale" "az:ca:co:fr:gv:oc:pt:sq:tr:wa:en"

cp /etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules /etc/gtk-2.0/i486-slackware-linux/
