Issue report: TF2: Game doesn't support non-ASCII input
With a Finnish keyboard layout, I'm unable to enter Umlauts (ä, ö) in the in-game chat box.

Same here! (letters used in italian: è é ò à ù ì)
I think this bug is related to unicode support (you know in windows the char codification is different)

I'm using the US International layout, typing in portuguese and I also have this problem. In addition to that, I am unable to open the console window with the ` key (probably because it is a dead key).

You can actually re-bind the console key through the keyboard options. You would also have to enable the console under advanced settings.

Sure, but it works this way on Windows, so it should work on Linux too.

Yeah, I suppose so.

With the latest update the characters with accents are accepted correctly, but the console issue still exists here.
