Bug Description

After a clean Installation of Kubuntu 20.04 LTS (previous version 19.04 with limited support)
I am facing the problem described below In all Kubuntu applications (where I have to type In Greek language) like Kate, LibreOffice etc.
Only exceptions are the web browsers like Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. There everything works fine.
Environment languages are First the US English and second the Greek Simple.
The problem Is that I cannot type the most important Greek special character (accent) : tonos (')
e.g. I cannot type the word καλός but instead I come up with the word καλ'ος.
We type the special character need to be shown above the letters by pressing first the :; key next to L and then the specific letter we want to have the special character combined.
The result Is that I cannot practically use edit or create a descent document or note etc. In Greek language.
