I would like to setup a compose key, but the only options available in the KDE system settings (and via /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules) are:
compose:ralt Right Alt compose:lwin Left Win compose:rwin Right Win compose:menu Menu compose:lctrl Left Ctrl compose:rctrl Right Ctrl compose:caps Caps Lock compose:102 Less-than/Greater-than
None of those please me though; "compose:caps" might be ok, but it's mapped to ctrl already.
Is there an option so setup some key (e.g. some of those extra function keys), or to get the key itself somehow? (e.g.
ralt would be OK, if I could easily get the original behavior of the key (AltGr))
I would love to have something like Shift-AltGr to trigger Compose mode.
I guess I could add an extra rule, like it's done for/with
compose:102.. what does 102 refer to? (it's not something dumped via
There is also an option
lv3:ralt_switch_multikey (Right Alt, Shift+Right Alt key is Multi_Key), but this did not work as expected (see http://bugs.kde.org/246472).
