Multi_key + , + C or c = ? or ? . Far better than MS's way of doing
things; similar to MacOS as a matter of fact! There's a table of a lot
of things in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/iso8859-1/Compose that tells you
exactly which keys to hit to generate a whoppin glot of special
"xmodmap -pm" will print the current modifier map. Mine is:
shift Shift_L (0x32), Shift_R (0x3e)
lock Caps_Lock (0x42)
control Control_L (0x25), Multi_key (0x6d)
mod1 Meta_L (0x40), Alt_R (0x71)
mod2 Num_Lock (0x4d)
mod4 Super_L (0x73), Super_R (0x74)
mod5 Scroll_Lock (0x4e)
...which means that my right Ctrl key is Multi_key. If you *don't* have
a Multi_key in your default modifier map, it ain't no thing to put one
xmodmap -e 'keysym Control_R Multi_key'
xmodmap -e 'keycode 109 Multi_key'
109 is the keycode my right Ctrl key generates. Use "xev" to see which
keys generate which keycodes. HTH, good luck, this should be better
documented somewhere but I don't know *where*....
