i cant get the spanish keyboard to fully work, i need áéÍóú

hello everyone i have like 1 month since i installed archlinux and im currently using xfce4 on it.

Ok so my problem is that i have all my keys on the keyboard working rite but i cant seem to find the way to have áéÍóú <<-- these letters, and i really need them since i use spanish texts and when im typing i have ´i ´o ´u ´a ´e , when i try the same combination as i use it on windows or other linuxs.

Maybe someone of u know how to get this done as i think it should be easy but i cant seem to find the way to it.

In case one of u ask here is my xorg keyboard conf.

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Keyboard0"
    Driver      "kbd"
        Option      "CoreKeyboard"
    Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
    Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
    Option "XkbLayout" "es"
    Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
EndSection


I need to tell u guys that when im on init 3 on the console i have the keys that i want , but in xfce i dont have them.

thanx in advance for all your help.

Erm perhaps use the 'loadkeys' command?

I have 'loadkeys dvorak.tgz' or something similar to get dvorak layout loaded at boot. Just put that line in rc.local.
