My problem is: while using the US layout, the behavior is the same on Windows.
To me, ok, but when, as you guys, I put other non-tech people using Ubuntu, it's a problem.

On Windows, when I use US international, and I type '+c, I get ç. When I type '+I, I get "I'". So, I can type portuguese and US stuff (for programming) with no problem.

But, as we're discussing here, the behavior is different on Ubuntu. Not sure if it's a bug, appears to be the Ubuntu way.

Anyway, I changed this (I'm using 12.04 LTS).

I did a bunch of stuff, not sure if all this is really required. Please, correct me I'm wrong or doing unnecessary steps.

I used this .XCompose file in my home folder: http://www.raelcunha.com/.XCompose
Then I included in my .bash_profile and .profile:

export GTK_IM_MODULE=xim
export QT_IM_MODULE=xim

Then I asked to Ubuntu use xim:

im-switch -s default-xim

Then I installed ibus-table-compose:

sudo apt-get install ibus-table-compose

Then logout and login.

Can someone from Ubuntu team tell me if all this is required?
