[xubuntu-users] Weird language problem?

I recently upgraded my XUbuntu 20.04 LTS to 22.04 LTS.
I have been using XUbuntu for a long time, more than 10 years. I use
Emacs all the time for all sort of things, I write in French I'd say 90%
of the time, so accentuated letters are important to me. Since the
update, Emacs won't write accentuated letters any more?
The weird thing is when I run Emacs as root, no problem; so I thought
the problem was in my emacs init file, so I ran Emacs as a regular user
with no init file, same problem?
This machine is un dual boot with Debian, under Debian, no problem,
Emacs as access to the same init file on both OS.
I checked the "/etc/default/locale" file in Debian and made the Xubuntu
one identical. It helped a little, I now have the date in the calendar
in French, it was in English before. The login screen was and still is
I don't know where to look anymore to get this to work and I don't want
to run as root all the time.
Thanks a lot,
