Linux Compose Key Sequences


This table shows the compose key sequences which can be used to enter accented and other non-standard characters in Linux.

To use these, you will first need to set up a compose key. Details may vary depending on your Linux setup, but it should be something like this:

  • Open the Control Centre / desktop configuration tool.
  • Select "Regional / Keyboard Layout".
  • Select "Xkb Options".
  • Scroll down to "Compose Key Position".
  • Select which key you would like to use as a compose key. The menu key works well for me.
