Follow up: compose key with Xfce

Following up on a previous article.
On certain keyboards, there is no right Windows key to set up a “compose” key.
In /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/xorg.lst, you can find the default keys that can be defined as “compose”:

Compose key          Compose key position
  compose:ralt         Right Alt is Compose.
  compose:lwin         Left Win-key is Compose.
  compose:rwin         Right Win-key is Compose.
  compose:menu         Menu is Compose.
  compose:rctrl        Right Ctrl is Compose.
  compose:caps         Caps Lock is Compose

All set now to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

EDIT 070820: On Ubuntu, look at the file /usr/share/X11/locale/iso8859-1/Compose for a complete list of the special characters you can get with the “compose” key (depends on your keyboard layout and locales).

  1. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in
    your article seem to be running off the screen in
    Opera. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon.
    Thanks
