accents

How can I type accents with my keyboard?

To type accents with your keyboard, you will need to configure the Compose key on your keyboard.

If you do not know the keycode for your Compose key, at a terminal window, type:

xev

You will immediately note lots of output in the window every time you press a key or move the mouse in the 'xev' window.
Press the key to the right of the Alt key.
