    Thanks but there is no Input Devices option. And I have looked and looked and looked but cannot find the compose key position!

    I use KDE

    If on an older KDE4 version, it may be in "Region/Country". Take a look around there if you do have that. IIRC there's a tab "Advanced" where you can set the option described above.

    In Systemsettings there's a search field. Type in 'keyboard', look for the option 'Keyboard layout', check 'Enable keyboard layouts', then go 'Advanced', check 'Restore old options', the list below opens, now check Right-Alt as the compose key. Apply this.

    Next, in an editor, or where ever in a text field do this to compose characters:

    Right-Alt, [extra to add to character], character

    Examples:
    Right-Alt, ", a ->
    Right-Alt, ' , c ->
    Right-Alt, =, c -> €
    Right-Alt, /, o ->

    Knorpot for King!

    The sequence is as such:
    Click the Chameleon
    ==>System Settings
    ==>Regional & Language
    ==>Keyboard Layout
    Enable on Enable Keyboard Layouts
    Click on the Advanced Tab
    Then click on the Compose key and choose the one you like!

    Thanks again to everybody for helping me! I appreciate it. One day when I am big, maybe I will be able to help someone!


    Yeeha!

    PS How do I add a <Solved> to the topic name?
