hi.. i'm new in linux and often need to use french accents in documents (for example in OO) like éêëèçàáâ ... in windows, there are codes you can use on your keyboard like ALT + 130 to produce the é symbol... i've noticed in linux, the alt codes do not work. is there any plans for support of this feature? im sure it would be quite appreciated by a lot of people.. it's a common annoyonance.. umm.. for now i'm using kcharselect, but it's time consuming and i'm so used to the alt codes in ms word... manually copying each accent to the clipboard and then pasting it is so un-natural when your typing a document.. is anybody aware of any plans to impliment or any shorter ways i can set it up to accept alt codes in ubuntu ?? thanks !!!
