compose key lost

Hi,

I just did a big software actualization and I lost the compose key. I guess I may have lost some comments about that during actualization.

I sought documentation about that and found this one:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ke … on_in_Xorg

To get the code that should be put in /usr/share/X11/locale/fr_FR.utf8/Compose, it just suggest to run:

 https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Keyboard_Configuration_in_Xorg

But this would just give me part of the code. I remember that documentation was easier earlier so that one would not have to dig into forum to configure keyboard.

Re: compose key lost

Hi,

I just upgraded cinnamon ([2013-12-19 12:18] [PACMAN] upgraded cinnamon (1.8.8-5 -> 2.0.14-1) and lost the compose key configuration I did using cinnamon tools. Other configuration does not work. At least does not work if not manually because cinnamon overright configurtion done as discussed in earlier topic.
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1293557

I tried to find back were to configure compose key in meanders of cinnamon configuration tool with no luck so far!

I think it should be in Region & language settings but I could not figure out were exactly.


-- mod edit: read the Forum Etiquette and only post thumbnails http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/For … s_and_Code [jwr] --



I actually have to run manually the following command to get it working:

setxkbmap -option compose:rctrl

but that's not what I want (of course)!

It was not clear to me why you felt the need to start two threads.  Please do not do that.
