How to configure XKB to give you a compose button
1 minute read

Eric Dorland wonders how to enable the Compose key just using XKB. Personally, I use my caps lock key for that, and using

        Option          "XkbOptions"    "compose:caps"

in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, that’s easy enough.

Other options are compose:ralt, compose:rwin, compose:menu and compose:rctrl.
