My apologies for not being clear in the opening letter, but I was looking  
for a solution for Fedora 15. :) However, I did manage to get the  
suggestion by Petrus de Calguarium to work, which was this:

>> I'm using the US English keyboard, and am so used to that, I don't want  
>> to
>> change the layout.
> I type a lot in German and French and I also use the US 104-key generic  
> layout.In systemsettings/input devices/keyboard/layouts, you can select  
> US-
> international with dead keys (sometimes called acentos).

Many thanks, Petrus. However, in F15 the settings are under System  
Settings -> Region and Language -> Layout. You can edit the current layout  
to get the dead keys, but it is possible to add a new layout.

íïéë - Iḿ almost loving it... :) All I need to learn is which alt I need  
to type to get the apostrophe, and not an m with an accent...
