To make something clean I installed from Lubuntu_13.10oct30.tar.xz,
selected Swedish at the OEM finishing screen, added Swedish language,
set it system-wide. and rebooted.

The clock, pull down menus, letters in the terminal windows are Swedish,
for example åäö. but the issue with c is still there.

It behaves as I described earlier

Acute accent + c  prints ç in 12.04.3 but ć in 13.10

setxkbmap pt gives a keyboard where I get ç, where the US keyboard has ;
(semicolon), the key below p.

Best regards
