    Keyboard after (L)Ubuntu 20.04 to 22.04 upgrade, Qt, fcitx, umlaut letters

    Goal:

    Type umlaut letters by just pressing Shift+topdoubledotaccent+letter (e,i,u,o) (on azerty keyboard).
    As in the German 'übermensch' (hyperhuman) or in the Dutch + Flemish 'beïnvloeden' (influence).
    Good to know is, although the same language (with tiny differences), the Dutch use the anglo-saxon qwerty keyboard layout and the Flemings the French azerty keyboard layout.

    Situation:

    Taskbar (bottom panel) keyboard icon activates an alert (see image attachment).
    Confirming it opens a configuration file in text editor.
    fcitx not launched.

    Screenshot:




    Actions taken:

    - Remove fcitx and all its components in synaptic packet manager. Icon disappears from bottom panel (after reboot).
    - Restart.
    - Go to Menu -> Preferences -> LXQT Settings -> Keyboard and Mouse -> Keyboard Layout.
    Notice the remark: "If you are using an Input method, such as IBus, uim, fcitx, or gcin, the settings here might not work because they are overriden by the input methods"
    If you are a Belgian/Fleming and you want the umlaut keys, the keyboard layout 'Belgian (no dead keys)' won't work.
    What does seem to work is: 'Belgian (Wang 724 AZERTY)'...
    Click the 'Add' button and move that setting to the top.
    The Germans will probably just add German.

    Screenshot:




    Not sure if it is necessary to remove fcitx.
    Less is More and it could always get reinstalled if needed.

    Other useful advise welcome.

    What is the output of:
    Code:
    dpkg -l | grep -i fcitx; lsb_release -a; uname -a
    Thanks
