Compose Key

Mon Aug 28, 2017 2:35 am

Hey, I badly need Compose Key to stay alive :D

Is there in any way I can get that to work in Solus? I couldn't find it in the keyboard setting. Plus there is not available in software center.

You will need to make a package request. https://solus-project.com/articles/pack ... ackage/en/

Add this as an autostart item in the settings you find in Raven.

Code: Select all

setxkbmap -option compose:rwin 
At least if you want the compose key to be the right OS key on your keyboard.

Thanks Craig. I have done it here https://dev.solus-project.com/T4416

But the necessary infromation for package request are rather scary as I didn't know what to fill it in with.
Basically I just beg for some mercy. Hope they will give some :D

Looked at your package request. So you use DejaVu fonts ?

Have you checked the Fonts section in Raven ?

The terminal command works fine, but you can also install (might be installed by default) gnome-tweak-tool. You can search it in software gui or type

Code: Select all

sudo eopkg it gnome-tweak-tool
. Then go to typing => position of compose key => select the key you want, for me it is 'menu' (located between alt and ctrl).
