I have tried to set up my Compose key in Lubuntu 20.04LTS and am having no luck.
I've gotten to where I see
org.gnome.desktop.input-sources xkb-options ['compose:ralt']
But am unable to get any combinations to work. Nothing happens. For example, if I want to make a "ñ" character, I press the "Alt Right" key (then unpress it). Then I press Shift and ` to get the tilde (and unpress). Then "n" for the n. And it simply shows me "~n" as if I'd typed those two characters in the first place.
Am I doing something wrong in the key presses? Do I need to hold Alt-Rt down for instance and see a prompt the way the Cntl-Shift-U underlines the "u" and signals it's waiting for a Unicode?
Or do I hold down the Alt-Rt key the whole time I'm pressing? If so, this seems very awkward for typing.
Really confused and frustrated with the difficulty of getting these simple accented characters to appear.
