either you need to chose the correct keyboard variant with dead keys,
IOW not the option "nodeadkeys" or you could use the Unicode to get the
char by pushing Ctrl+Shit+U and then typing the number of the unicode
and after that pushing space or enter.
If you push the dead key ´ and then a you get á .
If you push Ctrl+Shit+U and after that the number 00e1 and
enter you get á ,
