Making ‘+c become cedilla (ç) again in Ubuntu

November 13, 2009

“US International” keyboards with dead keys used to generate cedilla/cedilha (ç) when you typed accent (‘) followed by c. Now they generate ć instead. If you would like to restore the former behavior, go to
/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/immodule-files.d/libgtk2.0-0.immodules
UPDATE: (Feb 2011) In Ubuntu 11.04 the file is: /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/gtk.immodules

and look at these lines:

"/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/immodules/im-cedilla.so"
"cedilla" "Cedilla" "gtk20" "/usr/share/locale" "az:ca:co:fr:gv:oc:pt:sq:tr:wa"

Make sure that your language is within the list in the 5th column. In my case, I just had to add :en: changing the config option to:

"/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/immodules/im-cedilla.so"
"cedilla" "Cedilla" "gtk20" "/usr/share/locale" "az:ca:co:en:fr:gv:oc:pt:sq:tr:wa"
