KilosMaaz, compose key09:05
MaazYou go system/keyboard/layouts/options/ then on compose key tick the tiny triangle and choose which key you would like to use as your compose key. To use the compose key you tap the chosen compose key and then shift and the diacritic you want, then type the character and it will appear inline. more info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diacritic09:05

Kiloslooks like they might get windows peeps interested in ubuntu if windows peeps read it17:37
Kiloshere comes some spam17:38
KilosReader Duane Donovan has given me the idea of running a column/series which would be just for Windows users, or for those brand new to Ubuntu. It would take parts of Windows and explain it's *buntu equivalent. I'm going to try and show how things are done using Unity, Gnome, KDE, XFCE and LXDE for each item.17:38
Kilosoh not too bad17:39
Kilosi have no idea who their readers are or how many there are, but i get a monthly ,ail from then17:40
