Re: [Evolution] Accented characters

easy it was to type Extended ASCII characters.  Alt + code.  That's
all.  Worked from any text entry window.  If I wanted an enye (n with a

For example, to change to a spanish keyboard mapping, type:

Or even better, you can assign a key to be the Compose key.  This has
the advantage of not changing the layout of the keyboard at all.  For

      xmodmap -e "remove mod1 = Meta_R" -e "keysym Meta_R = Multi_key"

"RightAlt ~ n".

I think there is a way to do this from XF86Config too, but I don't know
how that works.
