I'm using a Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000 keyboard in Ubuntu 12.04.2, I choose English US(alternative international), everything seems fine, but when I need to use the ç (I live in Brazil) cames ć at Skype. How can I fix that ? In Brazil we never use this character ć, so I think to fix this I just need to exchange ć to ç.

@l1zard No, according to that page ç is code point 231 in ISO-8859-1. Not the same thing. ASCII is only defined for code points 0 through 127 inclusive. –  Michael Kjörling Aug 14 '13 at 13:18
    
you're sure right. correction foloows: i wanted to write 8859-1 in the first place. as descibed here for example torsten-horn.de/techdocs/ascii.htm it seems you want the 8859.1 charcter 231. The big quesion though is what one has to do to generate this. –  l1zard Aug 14 '13 at 13:23

Are you using the compose key? When I Right Shift+AltGr, ', C, I get ç.

For me this also works the other way around so try c then '

That's because Skype is a QT4 application and those follows slightly different rules. You can unify the configuration though. –  Oli Aug 14 '13 at 13:57
