Accents issue on any editor


I'm developing J2EE Maven based application but accents aren't catched correctly by no editor (Editing .java, .xhtml, .txt, ...).
When I press 'à', the editor shows me '�'.
I've checked file encoding (UTF-8) on Settings->File Encodings. Also "IDE Encoding" and "Project Encoding" shows 'UTF-8'.

I've tried to edit a file with system editor Gedit and when I open the file with IntelliJ I can see the correct accent, but I cannot type it...

I'm on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and run the last version of IntelliJ IDEA.

Thanks in advance,

Hello Juanma,

What keyboard layout do you use? What JDK version do you use? Please attach idea.log ("Help - Show Log in").

I use 'Spain' layout. The option 'Separate layout for each window' and 'New windows use active windows layout' are checked.
I use JDK

I've just tried to select "France" keyboard layout, but the issue continues. I've tried to put a single accent '`' and it success, but when I press an accent with a vowel it fails.

I attach the log

I tried to use JDK1.7 with no success. I read the solutions or workarounds about Ibus, but the problem still remains.
Finally, I install Lubuntu 14.04 on a Virtual machine in order to test the problem and it works!
So I think is a problem of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS or some component (like Ibus) and I will move to Lubuntu 14.04

Thanks for your replies Yaroslav Bedrov
