Typing Characters Not on the Keyboard

I need help typing characters not on the keyboard. In Windows, I did this by holding ALT, typing a sequence of numbers on the numpad, and then releasing ALT. I cannot figure out how to do this in Linux. Is there a way?

Edit: Great, I seem to have enabled something that uses the quote button to type them, but itīs too limiting for normal typing. Is there a way to turn it back off now, maybe an easy way to toggle it? Reversing the option back to what it was didnīt seem to do looks like itīs stuck on, which is a serious problem, as I canīt seem to even type double quotes now...
