It's not a bug, it's a feature!
If you want the standard tick mark, press the quote followed by a space.
backwards accents can be formed with the quote left from the number one:
Trema's with the double quote Ã¤ Ã« etc.
You should be able to change this behaviour using
System->preferences->keyboard but I don't know what option you should
choose. Guess you have to experiment a bit. Â*On the other hand, this
feature is really handy if you get used to it. Maybe you should try it
for a few weeks.
My keyboard is not doing this; what keyboard layout should I choose in Systems->preverences->keyboards to get this feature?Â* Sometimes I post on the Musix forum and might like to interject some Spanish. This feature would be so much easier than switching back and forth between keyboards!Â* If you visit Musix forums (
http://foros.musix.es), I am Bazbo; on Ubuntu Forums I am Aurora.Â* LikeÂ* Yvan, I also have an M-Audio Ozone, but I have been struggling for over a year to get it to work properly in Linux.Â* You are lucky yours works. If you think you can help, please see this thread:
I have stumped everybody on every forum and mail list I have tried.Â* Maybe it is just time for new hardware?
Luis, thank you for the short tutorial.Â* Now maybe I won't have to skip the accent marks when I attempt to write in Spanish.
As you can see, I am behind reading this forum, and am just getting to late November.Â* If you reply to this message, please CC zaltar at myway dot com so I see the reply before next February :0Â* Also, G-Mail does not let me write the subject line when I reply, so I am sorry for the silly subject line, but there is nothing I can do about it.Â* At least I edited the other posts from the digest.
