Issue Report: Can't type the ç character on Steam
I'm unable to use the ç character in any part of Steam using the "English (US, alternative international)" keyboard layout on Ubuntu 12.04. The default keypress to it is ' (apostrophe/acute accent) + c in every window on Ubuntu, but on Steam it shows ć instead.

Do you tried to paste this character?

Yes, that's the only way I was able to post it here (I'm using the Steam client to browse this forum).

Maybe its because hotkeys doesnt work in steam (like ctrl-c or something).

Yes, keyboard shortcuts don't work (try ctrl+c, ctrl+v, ctrl+a, etc)

I have a Spanish keyboard and I can, but I use ibus to write in japanese and I noticed that it does not work.
Maybe it's related to ibus and similar

I _normally_ use the English (US, alternative International) keyboard, but as my gaming keyboard has no | key (but it does have the ><| key) I went with the US International W/Dead Keys option. It is SIMILAR, and it is placing the diacriticals on top of the a for suomi ... i.e. ä and ö . (Which are normally " and a or o.) On THIS keyboard layout, the ç is altgr-comma. I know changing keymaps is VERY difficult, but it does seem (at least here on Lubuntu / Quantal) that the diacriticals work with keymaps and the steam app.

Update: I have discovered that in the ingame overlay, the x.org keymap is NOT used. That means, in my case, that I cannot type ä or ö - OR " or ' - as those are "combining" keycodes in my keymap. So it appears that the keymap is used for anything using the webkit engine - but anything NOT using the webkit engine, and it's own key reading routines, is confused by non-US keymaps. (Valve programmers/testers: You'll be happy to know that the US-International keymaps keep the (, ), [, ], and similar important keys in the same spot, but you'll be able to type accents for testing.)
