Steam keyboard issues on KDE / XOrg

This is the output of my localectl:

   System Locale: LANG=pt_BR.UTF-8
                  LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8
       VC Keymap: us-acentos
      X11 Layout: us
       X11 Model: pc104
     X11 Variant: ,intl

Which works fine and as expected on any other applications. On steam, however, it works almost as expected - except for the fact that the cedilla is on altgr+, instead of the expected '+c, given my locale settings. On some games, however, the in-game chat has a completely wrong layout (it is just the regular stock US keyboard, no variations or dead keys) - specifically, on Deep Rock Galactic (using proton 5.0-5).

I have looked at these articles:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xo … figuration

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/St … leshooting

To no avail. Also, looking at some older posts (https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=200477), the solutions shown there don't seem to work.

Is there any way to fix this?

Re: Steam keyboard issues on KDE / XOrg

Some games (many things  but it seems especially prevalent there), in general, have no notion  of different keyboard layouts and will internally just default to the stock en_US layout. Are you sure this isn't just the game's fault?

Something you could test more generally if this is just a wine issue, maybe open the standard notepad shipped as part of wine and check whether the layout works there.

Thanks for replying! You are right, it is a game-specific thing Don't starve Together has the right keyboard config. Is there anyway to configure the game to use the proper layout? I'm willing to switch to Wayland if it helps (I'm assuming it doesn't, but hey, I'm up for anything).
Regarding steam, how can I change the keyboard layout? Do you have any idea?

Thanks for your help smile

EDIT: AFAIK I don't have wine installed here, though proton is (Proton is based on Wine, right?). Also, I don't think I made it clear on the OP -- steam chat and web browser has the wrong keyboard config, too, but differently than the Deep Rock Galactic one.
