that magic compose key for special characters

Standard

I’m Afrikaans
we use a lot of silly characters sometimes
like ö ô ê ë

ComposeKey

if you set the compose key under “Keyboard” -> “Typing” under GNOME or Ubuntu Unity
then it works like this:

  • <right control> + <shift> + ” + o = ö
  • <right control> + <shift> + ^ + o = ô
  • <right control> + <shift> + ” + e = ë
  • <right control> + <shift> + ^ + e = ê
