I freshly installed ElementaryOS, I speak French, have a QWERTY keyboard so I use English (US, international with dead keys) keyboard (useful to do "é" for exemple)

And it's supposed to do a "ç" when I press ' and then "c"

But it does "ć" (which is sadly useless in French)

Is there a way to edit that myself? Or is it an error in ElementaryOS?

Thank's for help !

  • Why don't you use the French keyboard? You can still have the rest in English but it will detect your keyboard correctly.

  • Did you try pressing Alt Gr + any other key? In my keyboard it gives lots of symbols, maybe there's the one you need as well. for example @ł€¶ŧ←↓→øþæßðđŋħł

Install Character Map from AppCenter and then insert the special character with Ctrl+Shift+u+unicode number of the character+Enter, the unicode number that you get from the Character Map. For ç it's Ctrl+Shift+u+00e7.

  • Hm my question wasn't clear. In fact I need to replace this "ć" with "ç" when I press keys, as it's supposed to be. (Sorry for that mistake)
