This seem to actually be a Ubuntu issue, rather than a Wine issue, but anyway...
Have look at your keyboard layout setting... (Preferences > Keyboard)

Under layouts, check the keyboard model and the layout (Mine, for the
occational Afrikaans, has the layout set to USA International (AltGr
dead keys) which requires right Alt / AltGr with the deadkeys in order
for it to work)

Under France there is quite a few layout options...
