I found https://lubuntu.me/tip-compose-key/ but the Keyboard Layout Handler doesn’t exist in current Lubuntu 19.04. How can I set a Compose key for entering several chars?
I am using an English US AltGr Intl keyboard layout, and I want CapsLock to be the Compose key.
If I need to edit a hidden file like .xinput or another, please tell me so.
Hii @lobaluna Thanks for your query.
Keyboard Layout handler exists in 19.04. Here’s how to configure it:
- Go to Applications Menu → Preferences → LXQT-settings → Keyboard and Mouse.
- Go to “Keyboard Layout”
- Set Keyboard Layouts
- Select the key you want to use as compose key from the drop down menu in front of “Keys to change Layout”
Tip: maximize the window to clearly see the longer options in the drop down menu.
Hope this helps. Let us know if you face any difficulties.
Sorry to contradict you. I’m on Ubuntu 19.04 and that is not an option available… Following there’s a screenshot of my current settings dialog.
Maybe somewhere else? I currently have Compose key defined in
My point is either the above mentioned webpage is outdated or something is wrong in my desktop. If the later i s correct, your instructions aren’t working either. Sorry.
Those instructions won’t work coz you yourself are overriding them by setting it through ~/.xinit
Remove that setting and then try the above instructions.
You should probably use fcitx. It’s best. I guess it’s provided with lubuntu. If not then you can install it with one command : sudo apt install fcitx
