Typing Accents

I speak French and Italian as well as English and use forums in all three languages. With Windows I was able to use (I forget the correct name) international UK keyboard or something where I could easily put accents etc. I've tried changing the keyboard settings to various English language keyboards (as this is the language I use most, it is the best one for me to have as my keyboard setup and I have no intention of learning AZERTY etc. lol). Is there an easy way to set up the keyboard so I can type with accents etc?

(Note: This question was contained in another thread but the main question asked in that thread was solved so I have marked that thread as solved as I no longer need assistance with the main problem - see here: https://linux.org/threads/firewall-blocks-my-vpn-solved.24992/ - not trying to annoy anyone by asking this in a new thread - just don't want to waste anybody's time by them giving me a solution to a problem I've resolved - thanks for your understanding).

G'day @Interista :)

I haven't got an answer for you, myself, on this issue, but I will scout around.

I am moving this Thread to Linux Hardware, as its subtitle is

"Help with getting various hardware working correctly with Linux"

& keyboard issues are commonly dealt with there.

If you get an opportunity, let us know at the other Thread how you solved the firewall problem, it can benefit other Members :)

Cheers

Thanks both. (I added my solution to the original thread).

Trying with the UK versions of the US versions you suggested - getting some progress though I can't find out how to tail Cs (I know there's a more correct term for this but I'm no grammarian). I'll have a play around because the layout of how to do the accents is different from how it works on Windows and come back if I still can't work out the Cs after a while.

Interista ... is that a Milan fan?
