US-International Keyboard


Anyone here know how I can get the US-International keyboard for Slackware? As of now, when I need to use accents I have been switching to the Spanish keyboard.. but that just doesn't work well and actually moves my keys around.

I have tried searching for it and haven't really come up with anything.

I would try the French Canadian keymap if you know where the accents are on this mapping. The other keys I quite equivalent to normal US mapping.

Have you tried the compose key functionality of X11? It works well for me. I've been using it for some time now.

Since you don't say what DE/WM you are using, I am going to describe the way I set it up for FVWM.

I put the following line in my ".xinitrc":
Code:
setxkbmap -option "compose:rwin"
The right windows key is now my compose key.

So for example to get an accent on the letter "e", I now type:
Code:
right windows key
accent ("`" or "'")
letter "e"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compose_key
There is a screenshot of how to setup the compose key in xfce.
