Accented letters displayed incorrectly in amsn on Ubuntu


Hi there,

I have a friend who uses Ubuntu linux and chats on MSN using amsn, but each time he tries to type an accented letter such as and so on, it comes up with funny symbols such as ç*éè instead.

Does anyone know how he can rectify this problem?

Thanks

Two things are possible: incorrect keyboard layout or font that doesn't have the symbols.
