No... I tried Norwegian layout but it didn't work either.  It seems 
the problem had something to do with my locale, that is, a mixing of 
ja_JP and en_US.  I created a new user with French locale, then I got 
all accented characters (even "œ") and dead keys worked in all 
applications I tried.  But when I changed input method to uim-anthy 
in qtconfig, I got "^a" again! :( The strange thing is, dead keys are 
still working in OpenOffice Writer, though I can't type Japanese 

Thank you for the reply.
