For GNOME users: Have you set up a compose key?

(If not, you should; it's fantastic. My use case is in a reply.)

I've never heard of compose keys before, but the only other language I know is German and I don't think compose keys will help me too much there


@mattdm @benjaminhollon I have to switch to a German keyboard to get those characters usually, but I don't see how those characters could be reproducible other than maybe a few periods.

@morxemplum @mattdm äöü I was able to type with <compose> + <letter> + "

Not sure about the beta symbol.

But the combinations are customizable as someone else pointed out to me; I just haven't tested that yet.
