I know there's this question How can I type special characters like ë?, but I'd like to know if there is any possibility to configure the keyboard to use windowish style to insert special characters (Alt+Code in numpad). I know it can be done with Ctr+Shift+U+Code but...
- I have to enable ibus and don't know how to leave it enabled by default
Hex codes are longer than decimal onesCtrl+Shift+U+Hex codes combos are longer than the Alt+Decimal code ones
- As an ex-Windows(TM) user, I'm so used to it....
Two examples of characters I use a lot, comparing win style and gnome-style
Tilde (~) character Windows -> Alt+1-2-6 gnome -> Ctrl+Shift+U+7-e Superscript 2 - square (²) character Windows -> Alt+2-5-3 gnome -> Ctrl+Shift+u+b-e
If you try those 'key combos', the windows style is easier to type (not being subjective: less fingers used simultaneously, less keys pressed).
As I don't want to put it in some subjective way, my question would be it I can configure the keyboard to use Alt+Numpad style, or if I need to stick to the Ctrl+Shift+U combo (or the compose key alternative)
