    "Special" characters

    Anyone know if there is an easy way to enter in special characters or ASCII codes (like čšΦ) from the keyboard in linux? I was pretty sure there was a way to do it in vi at least. Also, if it is different for different apps, knowing how to do it in OpenOffice would be very beneficial.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ok. I figured it out. Feel like I have found a whole new world out there the i18n world. Thing is, I really don't particularily care about typing all those silly characters (forgive me, had way too little sleep), but a friend of mine does.

    Is just a problem to me. Besides I am stuck at work for 12 hours.

    My solution was to change the LANG variable to en_US in /etc/sysconfig/i18n, then use the us-int keyboard mapping (by either editting the XF86Config file, or using the keyboard prefs in KDE.

    Now....the only thing left is to find a map of all the keys. Does anybody out there know where I might find a keyboard map for the us-int layout?

    You should give a try to xkeycaps it's an easy-to-use front-end for xmodmap.
