#Francophones, I logged into my #SDF account to send email to a woman who has an "e acute" in her first name. I couldn't use my laptop's Ubuntu #charactermap to copy it into the shell. I looked for 'French' and 'Roman' encodings in the #terminal menu options but saw nothing.
How do you key accented vowels when typing in a shell?
Depending on your terminal & settings, sometimes you can CTRL+SHIFT+u then enter the Unicode point by number.
@cosullivan I recommend the compose key suggestion, because it will apply across all programs. "setxkbmap -option compose:prsc" will turn that useless printscreen key into Compose. Or you could use "compose:caps" or "compose:sclk" to put it on Caps Lock or Scroll Lock.
