I had been wondering how to do this myself. It looks like my default
install of Gnome on Ubuntu works like this...

To get an acute accent (all accents in Spanish), press the RIGHT ALT key
along with the apostrophe and then the vowel you'd like. In other words,
RIGHT-ALT-' e gives you é.

Use RIGHT-ALT-` for grave accents: à è ì ò ù

Use RIGHT-ALT-6 for circumflex: î ô

Use RIGHT-ALT-, for cedille: ç ş

Use RIGHT-ALT-~ (yes, that's RIGHT-ALT-SHIFT-`) for tildes: ñ ã õ

Use RIGHT-ALT-" (RIGHT-ALT-SHIFT-') for umlauts: ö ü

Did I forget any?
