I am currently using a keyboard layout that contains deadkeys, and I know that this layout is working because those dead keys work as expected when I use my hardware keyboard in Ubu chroot. However, within SFOS applications, the dead keys simply have no effect. What should I do to make them work? I think it was possible with the TOHKBD.

There seems to be some deadkey functionality in maliit for touch keyboards, see for instance the Czech keyboard. So there is some hope. Is there a way to make SFOS recognize deadkeys sent from hardware keyboards and defined as deadkeys in their corresponding xkb layout?
