I'm using Debian 3.16.39-1 (amd64) and LibreOffice I've recently installed ibus-pinyin. I'm using ibus Spanish keyboard layout to write, which includes accent keys that combine automatically in any text field to produce accented letters [i.e. à, é, ü, etc]. Nevertheless, and this is the weird thing, as soon as I focus in a different window than the one displaying the document in LibreOffice, I stop being able to write accented characters in the writer. Moreover, if I a get back to the doc and apply a paragraph style, I can anew write accented characters.

As you might see, the situation is kind of confusing and definitely a pain in the ass. I have no idea what could be causing this issue. Do you?

Thank you for your answers.


OK, I finally solved my problem. The issue was related to the fact that I installed ibus-pinyin yet I didn't reconfigure my locales with dpkg-reconfigure locales. Once I did it, everything started to work correctly.
