Hmm. Maybe scim modified something. Is there anything in your .emacs that looks suspicious. Have you discovered why C-x Ret C-\ does not work? Is this on Linux? Is there an Xmodmap keyboard config around anywhere? If you chose latin-1-postfix, what does e^ produce other than the non existent deadkey warning. I assume that the caret key on keyboard matches where it should be on the Fr layout. If you can get anything in by hook or crook, does C-x = show something like this, mutatis mutandis:

Char: ê (2282, #o4352, #x8ea, file ...) point=2 of 5152 (0%) column=0
Char: ^ (94, #o136, #x5e) point=2 of 5154 (0%) column=0

This is on ver 22.3

If I install a Fr keyboard on w32 (2000) and with input method latin-1-postfix, because of the French keyboard, input works backwards, i.e press caret (to right of p) and then e, produces circumflex e but it is still reported as:

Char: ê (2282, #o4352, #x8ea, file ...)

Same behavior with dieresis or umlaut: dead key invisible until next key pressed. In fact I can find no backslash on the French keyboard at all.

Another possibility is to set the keyboard to English via the OS and then chose one of the French input methods via Mule. That way you would at least have a backslash. Most if not all vowels with diacritics are on the number keys.
