6ferrets: Dead keys in KDE 3.5?

I recently upgraded to KDE 3.5.2, and the keyboard layout for US International with dead keys is missing. Is this a permanent change? Is there something I can do or install to get it back?

check if your /etc/X11/xorg.conf contains a line with "nodeadkeys" in the keyboard section. simply comment out that line. another possibility might be switching to the "intl" (or international) variant in the kde keymap selection thingy.

Switching to the intl variant did the trick. The layout variants are new to me. Thanks!
