Hi all,

I have recently upgraded one of my machines to 8.10 intrepid and for some reason I can't seem to get the compose key to work when writing emails in thunderbird. Works fine in terminal window and some other applications (suh s hr), although the accented characters dont work in amsn for example (although this was also the case for a previous gutsy version). Kind of annoying as I am working in France and use an English keyboard so the accented characters are kind-of important and I defintely do not have the patience to learn how to use a french keyboard :D

Any suggestions?
Nick
