sudo service keyboard-setup restart
sudo udevadm trigger --subsystem-match=input --action=change

Some nice fellow decided that an accented c (“ć”) is more importante than the c with a cedilla (“ç”), so the default behavior for pressing ‘ + c in international keyboards with deadkeys is now “ć”. Since I’m Brazilian and not Romanian or something, that definetly bothers me. ‘ + c used to output “ç” once upon a time.

To fix it, edit as root the file /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/gtk.immodules, find this line:

"cedilla" "Cedilla" "gtk20" "/usr/share/locale" "az:ca:co:fr:gv:oc:pt:sq:tr:wa"

And add :en after :wa, so it looks like this:

"cedilla" "Cedilla" "gtk20" "/usr/share/locale" "az:ca:co:fr:gv:oc:pt:sq:tr:wa:en"

Do the same with file /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/gtk-3.0/3.0.0/immodules.cache as above.
