How to write foreign characters by directly entering unicode in KDE4?
 
Hi everybody,

I've been searching for an answer that I though should be trivial, but apparently isn't. Didn't find any solution so far, so now I'll have to bother you. :)

How do I enter characters that aren't native to my keyboard layout in KDE (4.2.0) apps by using the unicode value directly?

In many (all?) GTK based apps, I have the Ctrl+Shift+U/<Unicode>/Enter method. Isn't there anything similar for KDE? It just seems pretty awkward to me to fire up kcharselect and start searching around every time I want to enter a simple or or something.

Sorry if this has an obvious solution or if it has been already discussed at length. In that case I'd appreciate a link, since my searches so far came up empty.

Thanks!

Good question. ;) I nerver found out for KDE and I did more than just a minute of googling around.

And yes, it works with all Gtk applications due to the underlying Pango-library which handles all the Unicode stuff.
