I assumed at the beginning of this discussion that the original poster
was in Portugal or Brazil or someplace where Portuguese is the main
language. If so, then he would have a Portuguese keyboard selected in
his operating system (Ubuntu). Therefore, he has dead keys to create
the diacritics used by Portuguese. If these are not working in Scribus,
then something is wrong. Does Scribus not support Portuguese?
Then again, maybe I completely misunderstood the situation.
