@bitsnpcs I found this and tested..
https://askubuntu.com/questions/358/how-can-i-type-accentuated-characters-like-%C3%AB

The 1st answer does work - In keyboard set layout compose to RightAlt to make it work..
"Right Alt" then ~ then e for a (1 at time not all keys in 1"+"1)

Perhaps an international keyboard layout??? Not sure which symbol/letter you're looking for..

Is there Gaeilge keyboard layout ?
So I can switch between on panel, we did have this switch function on the older Linux Lite in the past.

Fadas (síneadh fada) , these are the characters I need, I copy/paste these, and the info about it from internet below -

á, ó, ú, í and é

Á, Ó, Ú, Í and É

Alphabet is - A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, L, M, N, O, P, R, S, T, U 
Plus fada (long sounds) - Áá ("aw", /aː/), Ee - Éé ("ay", /eː/), Ii - Íí ("ee", /iː/), Oo - Óó ("oh", /oː/), Uu - Úú ("oo", /uː/) 
There does not exist in alphabet this ones of English J, K, Q, V, W, X, Y, Z
They can be used for "loaned words" from the other languages in the world etc.
Example like
Zú - Zoo
Vóta - Vote

So it is why it is needed the fada.
Is it too much info, or not needed info about it ?

I found this keyboard http://www.nascanna.com/p3/mearchlar/

Edit - http://www.nascanna.com/p53/coras-linux/

"Níor scríobhadh an tiomántán don chóras Linux go fóill.

"The driver was not written for the Linux system yet.

As I was posting - you did too but here it is anyway LOL
The previous may/should work... Set right alt, then the following RtAlt, ', e for é  worked on forum too :)

 


OR ?? and not sure if whats needed...
There is this?
 

Or there is language suppport - thou I don't know if this changes what you need..
 



**UPDATE**
My post probably doesn't help as much as a full keyboard... As for each accented letter its 3 keys that need pressed for 1 letter..


Good Luck thou Happy Hunting :)

@firenice03 Thank you  :) :) :)
The first one works perfectly.

I set it to win right, as I didn't have an RtAlt, only Alt Gr on the right, win right, aka panda right, both win keys have a panda gel sticker on them.
Single three keys works well to solve it for me, and I get to use the panda key I have never used before, the win right and the ' are close just one key between them so its fast to type it.
It is better than having to change a full keyboard in the usb each time.

Hi,
Already solved but for the record ;)
French use some of these caracters too and since in Canada, we use qwerty keyboards which is a lot similar to your picture.We also have the Alt Gr, which I used for this test.
Keyboard selection is Canadian Multilingual (not part 1 or part 2). I was able to create all the needed caracters and has a full keyboard. No drivers of special config.

 Cheers!

Hello@TheDead ,thank you for the info :)

Hello @firenice03 it is perfect :)
on this keyboard I also have some extra keys for things mutlimedia (VLC Player control keys) that I use so it is good to not need to change keyboard.
One way on windows is they use Alt Gr then type 4 numbers then the letter, so 6 keys, half the speed of LLite ;)

That's true.. I've used the Alt+1111 method before - I originally was looking at this option in Linux, but I do like the way I found; alt + accent type + letter :)
