I have a US keyboard and have been using the US-international layout with dead keys for years, since I prefer the US layout for coding, but also need to write text with special characters.
The keyboard settings in the Manjaro settings manager are
- Keyboard Model: Generic 105-key PC
- Language: English (US)
- Model: English (US, intl., with dead keys)
I never touched these settings after finishing my setup. As of latest, I believe since the last bigger Manjaro update, I cannot write single apostrophes (
') anymore. Instead, it types acute accent (
´). This is the case for most applications (Gnome terminal, Visual Studio Code, Chromium, Firefox,…), but interestingly not in Kate and also not in the Keyboard settings of Manjaro Settings Manager.
I created a new user to see whether it´s somethig related to my i3conf, but that´s not the case. Also,
localectl doesn´t show any suspicious keymap imho:
System Locale: LANG=en_GB.UTF-8 VC Keymap: us-acentos X11 Layout: us X11 Model: pc105 X11 Variant: intl
I do not know how to proceed with this. Can somebody reproduce the issue or is it just me? I´d be happy about any suggestion.
Thanks a lot,
/edit: I am running on LTS Kernel 5.4.108-1
/edit2: downgrade of the Kernel to the last version (linux54-5.4.105-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst, linux-firmware-20210315.r1846.3568f96-1-any.pkg.tar.zst) didn´t solve the issue either
