Cedilla on Fedora 18 and GTK 3.X

I couldn't find anywhere a recipe for putting cedilla as default on Fedora 18. None of them work properly for my environment, which is:
  • Desktop in a non-Portuguese language (in my case English)
  • Make the combination + produce a cedilla (รง)
The way I did it is:

1. Set Input Method to NONE:

Go to
-> System -> Preferences ->  Input Method Selector.

This should produce a window similar to that below. Select: No Input Method

2. Set, in your .bash_profile, to use ibus:

Edit your ${HOME}/.bash_profile file and add the following:

export GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus


cat >> ${HOME}/.bash_profile << __END__
export GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus

3. Setup GTK:

Add your language (in red) to the corresponding lines in:

"cedilla" "Cedilla" "gtk30" "/usr/share/locale" "az:ca:co:fr:gv:oc:pt:sq:tr:wa:de:en"

"cedilla" "Cedilla" "gtk30" "/usr/share/locale" "az:ca:co:fr:gv:oc:pt:sq:tr:wa:en:de"

"cedilla" "Cedilla" "gtk20" "/usr/share/locale" "az:ca:co:fr:gv:oc:pt:sq:tr:wa:en:de"
