Configuring Cedilla on Kubuntu 9.04

Kubuntu 9.04, the Jaunty Jackalope, was released on April 23rd of 2009. I have installed it; but, an annoying common problem that bothers Portuguese writers is still there: Cedilla doesn't work if you have installed using English language.

I googled looking for how to fix this problem, but I couldn't find a straightforward solution. Thus, I decided to compile some of them and write mine. As you may have noticed my favorite editor is emacs; so, file editing commands will be given using it.

At first, we are going to install the portuguese writting support:

sudo apt-get install language-support-writing-pt

Then, we have to configure the portuguese environment:

cd /usr/share/locales
sudo ./install-language-pack pt_BR
sudo ./install-language-pack en_US

Now, set the default language to portuguese:

sudo emacs /etc/default/locale

Replace en_US.UTF-8 with pt_BR.UTF-8, save and reboot your computer

In Kubuntu 10.04 or older also do

sudo im-switch -c
Choose /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/default-xim
