Compose Key alternative

I use a different approach. Instead of enabling a variant keyboard layout, I go to the Xkb Options tab (under Keyboard Layout as above) and check one of the Compose Key options; there are a number of different keys you can choose from as a Compose key. Then to get the international characters just hit the compose key followed by the relevent key sequence.

The complete list of key sequences for your Linux can be found in /usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/Compose or the equivalent for your locale. The Compose key is called Multi_key in this file.
