I use the following keyboard setup, "setxkbmap -layout dvorak -model
pc104 -option -option compose:caps". You can set this in Gnome in your
keyboard preferences (it's the compose key you are after, and I've
elected to use the most useless key on a keyboard ever, the Caps Lock
key, as the compose key).
Once you have compose key working, you can do combinations like
'Compose " a' -> 'ä', 'Compose , c' -> 'ç' and 'Compose = C' for
'€'. have a look through the /usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/Compose
file, as that will give you lots of ideas what you can Compose.
