Writing cedille with Suse


Hi!
I have a Suse Enterprise Desktop 11 and I'm wondering how I may write a cdille (). With Windows, you use the combination : alt+135.
I guess that I have to change something in the keyboard layout options but I don't know what. I've tried a bit but couldn't find any solution.

I've also tried the combination "alt gr+c" but it gives "" as a result.

Thanks for any help.

I can get it using "alt gr + , + c".

Have a look at http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-files-936003/ and http://www.hermit.org/Linux/ComposeKeys.html.

The file you'll need to look at is ~/.XCompose

Hope this helps,

Hi,

In the standard US and UK layout it's a three key combination of AltGr +,(comma)+ c at the same time to create .

Hope this helps

Spanish keyboard: on the last key in the home row (opposite end to "a")
US international keyboard (not US standard): AltGr + comma (pressed at the same time)
British keyboard: AltGr + "c" (same time)

Any keyboard with a Compose key set (Menu is a good choice): Compose + comma + "c" (typed in sequence, not at the same time)

I've just noticed your other post. With a German keyboard, you should be able to use: AltGr + last key in the top row (same time) followed by "c"

Thank you for your answers. I have a German Keyboard. With AltGr+C -no matter what other keys I may also choose with these- always give me "".

I'm not sure that I've understood this part... What do you mean exactly?

He was talking about your compose key, which is often but not always your Alt Gr key. You can use it to type non-standard characters, like your .

Well done for solving your problem - unless you've got a follow-up question, please mark the thread as "solved" using the link at the top of the page.
