I'm rather new at this accenting characters in linux, but I find that
with right-Alt set as my composing key, selecting the RAlt-shift-Tilde
and releasing them then typing the character I want accented (A in your

to produce umlaut (Ö) or comma to get a cedilia ç. there are many others
you can have fun experimenting!
