i´m kind of new to linux, but i have a dell inspiron 8600 laptop with gentoo on it. the problem is special keys like apostrophes, quotes, tildas, etc. - they don´t work whenever i am in X (in the console it works just fine). i have to hit the apostrophe key twice to get something resembling an apostrophe (but say in NetBeans, it displays some completely b/s character). after a while it gets annoying, and i have no clue where to fix this. does anyone have any ideas?
