Dear Tomas Garza Thanks for your reply. Sorry for the confusion, the relevant question is the accent keys used as dead_keys. Unfortunatelly, <esc>a'<esc> (for example) does not work because the acute accent - ' - does not appear in the screen. The other accents - ` ~ ^ and double quotes " - also do not appear. I think they are behaving differently because are used as dead_keys for accentuation in my Linux configuration. These accent keys appear correctly (as such and as helper for accentuation) in most applications. My problem is not the need for accentuation but the need for keys themselves, like ^ (circumflex) for inputing power.
