Unhappy Cant make under MDK 9.2. Help me!!!!

Happy 2004 to everyone!

I use MDK 9.2, and as a portuguese speaker, I need an essential letter which is the cedilha (). The problem is that Im not being able to do it from any kew combinations of layout, and the usual +c, gives me this: ć, which is usefull to eastern europe, but usuless to me.
I have an US intl keyboard, and at MDK 9.0 I didnt need any configuration to make it work properly writing in portuguese.
I have all the other caracters functioning fine.
Ive tried a solution said here here,
configuring the xf86cfg.
Can anyone help me?

The KDE control panel lets you assign functions to keyboard keys, such as "Compose"
If not, add this line to your /etc/bashrc file:
xmodmap -e 'keycode 116 = Multi_key'
This will make your right WINDOWS button into the Compose key

Then, when you press your Compose key, then "," (comma), then c, you get ""

Compose + "~" + a =
Compose + "^" + e =
Compose + " ' " (single-quote) + "o" =
Compose + " ` " + a =

Good luck!
