Here is what I would recommend:

1. Go to:
2. Scroll down to the Spanish keyboard layout
3. Right click the image and download - you'll get KB_Spanish.svg
4. Us the file browser (Nautilus) to go to the location where you saved
the image. Double click the .svg file. This will bring up the image in
the Gnome Image Viewer. The image will look odd with greyed out blocks,
however if you print it, it will be a clean, clear, print - full page
width - that you can use.

Also, the above will provide you with an explanation of the meaning of
"dead keys". However, it will not provide you with the function keys but
Google should help you out there.
