After talking to someone about the Cherokee keyboard layout I made at linuxforums, I had went through and tried to adjust settings again to see what I could come up with.
I modified every single compose file so that the US intl layout would change á to Ꭰ (Cherokee letter 'a'). After making one change in a compose file, I would restart X with CTRL+ALT+BKSPC, then move on to the next compose file and change that, and restart X, etc etc etc...
However, even with changing all instances of ( "\301" Aacute ) to ( "\13A0" U13A0 ) nothing changed. I still get the character á instead of Ꭰ.
Any ideas? Or at least any idea as to the purpose of all the Compose files if nothing changes?
Ok, I've found these sites and followed what these people did and used export trying to figure out the locale, but there is still no change what-so-ever...
Can someone please tell me why these compose directories even exist on an install if editing/modifying them does absolutely nothing? Or is export LC_ALL, LANG etc the wrong thing to use? And if so, what is the right way of doing this?
