KDE 4.4 SC Kubuntu Backports – Dead keys (acentos nos caracteres portugueses)

If upgrading to KDE SC 4.4 on kubuntu 9.10 using the backports, you will find out if using a keyboard that has accents, that these don’t work anymore…. letters like á à ì í and so on do not work…

The issue is solved here -> http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1404209

Basically by open a shell and run the following command:

sudo im-switch -s default-xim

Then press ALT-F1, enter the text console, login as your user and execute

sudo service kdm restart

problem solved.
