I've been having trouble with emacs lately. Whenever I try to get any of the signs ¨ ^ ~ ` ´ emacs doesn't respond. As if I didn't touch the keyboard at all. It used to work just fine (and works in all other applications). Sad to say, I've no clue as to how this problem arose. I've tried:
* purging and reinstalling emacs,
* removing .emacs and .emacs.d from my home dir,
* changing locale on the computer,
* googling and searching various forums (either the problem is quite rare, or I lack some fundamental knowledge).
The only "solution" I've found is to: M-x set-input-method, but this leaves me with a slightly weird editor, and I'm still unable to get ~, ^, and `. I just want to type ¨o to get ö, ´e to get é, and so forth. I feel utterly puzzled
Any ideas would be appreciated.
