    There is a screen keyboard that lets us type using mouse clicks. System Settings> Universal Access> Typing.

    Edit: This explains how to enter the Unicode of any particular character. See Code Points.

    https://help.ubuntu.com/stable/ubunt...lchars.html.en

    The code point for capital D is 0044. The code points for lower case d is FF44

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.
