I recently got Linux installed and I noticed that it was kind of difficult to make the interpunct (middle dot): "·". I would like to find a way to either directly replacing a key value (let's say the $ key) by the interpunct OR to have an easier shortcut (let's say ALT+D) to write it. On Windows I had found a software that made it possible but I haven't succeed in finding something similar on Linux (for now!). Is there any software that enables it? Or is there any other solution?
No software required for this.
It is simply done by pressing and holding the Alt Gr key and pressing the full stop character above it as this demonstrates ····
The interpunct will be placed in the centre of the line.
In the event that your keyboard doesn't support the key combination to insert the interpunct (like the French AZERTY keyboard) an alternative - if not perfect solution - is to try this resource of bullet symbols. its a work around but might work in your situation. If you click on the item you need, it will be copied to your clipboard and then Ctrl+v (or right mouse click - Paste) will post it in for you: •
I found an answer on the French forum of the community, see here.
I couldn't do an interpunct with the keyboard layout I was using: "Français (variante obsolète)". With another keyboard layout, "Français (variante)", it becomes possible to write an interpunct using
Alt Gr +
