Sorry for bringing this so late.

What I meant are "keyboard input methods", they are used for languages like 
Chinese or Japanese where the keyboard does not hold all the characters.

I am asking if it is a question of configuration.
In my case I use kde, calling System Settings->Hardware->Input devices-

There I can choose several items, like the keyboard type, variant (with and 
without dead keys) and other more advance options.

As I have told I remember to had problems like that but it was a long time 

Best regards,
