And yes LXKeymap misses somewhat the essentials for those with foreign
(=not angloamerican) keyboards. I'm happy you confirm my laments :)

>> I have a weird situation in my (clean) 12.10 system. I can't use accented characters (accents, dieresis, etc) with GTK2 apps, but I can write fine with GTK3 ones. My keyboard is a 105 intl. key, spanish with middle dot key. I'm using the catalan language. LXKeyboard is set to that.
