I'm trying to setup my keyboard layout to Brazilian Portuguese.

In Brazil, some words need accents (café, jóia, etc..) and I'm trying all available keyboard layout and language configurations, including to change the default OS language, without good results.

I'm running Elementary inside Oracle Virtual box.
