Hmmm. Looks like my perfectly good French accents in my compose window do
not end up as such when I read them in my browser. When I reply (what I'm
doing now) they come back to good characters. Is this normal? Anyways, I
modified my xorg.conf keyboad section to try to toggle keyboard maps:
Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
Option "XkbLayout" "us,ca"
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:toggle"
Surprisingly, by simply hitting the Right-Alt key I go from us to ca
although hitting the key again has no effect. Does anyone know how I can
toggle without having to issue commands all the time?
