Compose C plus =

I have my XFCE compose key created and working.
When I enter <composer> = C I get EUR but I want the C overlain with and = sign.
How do I do that?

Not sure whether this works, but have a look in /usr/share/X11/locale

For your locale, for example en_US.UTF-8, go to that subdirectory and edit the Compose file. Search for the lines
<Multi_key> <C> <equal>                 : ""   EuroSign # EURO SIGN
<Multi_key> <equal> <C>                 : ""   EuroSign # EURO SIGN
<Multi_key> <c> <equal>                 : ""   EuroSign # EURO SIGN
<Multi_key> <equal> <c>                 : ""   EuroSign # EURO SIGN
and replace the euro sign with the one you want.

You'll probably have to restart X.
