Thread: Keyboard shortcut for unicode characters?

  1. #1

    Unhappy Keyboard shortcut for unicode characters?

    On SuSE 10.0 I used to be able to use shift + ctrl + unicode code. That does not seem to work now. How can I get this feature again? I miss it. I used to use it a lot to put the copyright symbol over my artwork in Gimp.

    Default Re: Keyboard shortcut for unicode characters?

    When I need a I type the compose key (Shift-RightCtrl in my desktop) and then o and c.

    But that is only for this (and similar or other accented characters much used in western languages) and not for the whole Unicode range.

    option A) (using GNOME)
    Go to Computer>Control Centre>Keybord=Keybord Preferences>

    A1) Register:Layouts > Print
    To print your actual layout/combination

    In my configuration
    - the "Alt Gr" gives me level 3 (on that printing the symbols down right on each key/button)
    - the "Alt Gr"AND"Caps/Capital letters/↑" gives me level 4 (on that printing the symbols up right on each key/button)

    so "Alt Gr"and"Caps/Capital letters/↑"and"c" gives me ""

    Maybe also
    A2) Register:Layouts > Print
    To change your actual layout/combination

    option B)
    use a input-pad like the one of SCIM (came with korean letters?) Register: Symbols; Subregister: Letterlike

    AltGr_shift_C will produce on many layouts.

    ctrl > shift > U codeunicode
    example ctrl > shift > U 0338 gives R̸

    What is AltGr?
    unfortunately ctrl > shift > codeunicode does not work anymore for me. Like I said, it used to work for SuSE 10.0 but does not seem to be enabled on SuSE 11.2.
    I'm using KDE 4 as my desktop environment. I can't seem to find the way to add this ability to use unicode. How did SuSE 10.0 do it right?

    This looks nice (and it seems that you type the number in hex), but where did you switch that on?

    (Shift-Right Ctrl then o and c) worked for Kwrite only. I would like for that to work for all my apps (like OpenOffice, and Gimp). At least it's a start.

    - if I would like to change anything ;-)


    There is also something about "Key to change to 3. level" - I think your might be printed with "3.level" AND "Caps" AND "r".


    Good luck!
