Isam, you seem to me to be describing input using the "Compose" key, a.k.a
Multi_key, which LyX certainly does support. Eg with latin1 encoding
Compose a ' -> á
Compose u " -> ü
Compose l = -> £
I'm no expert but assume that Arabic encoding can use this too.
Check xmodmap to see whether your X is configured. You're looking for
aleem at pneumon:aleem-> xmodmap
xmodmap: up to 2 keys per modifier, (keycodes in parentheses):
shift Shift_L (0x12), Shift_R (0x59)
lock Caps_Lock (0x14)
control Control_L (0x11)
mod1 Alt_L (0x19), Alt_R (0x39)
mod2 Multi_key (0x28), Multi_key (0x58)
