Re: Compose key in X 4.0.1?

Look at /etc/X11/Xmodmap or ~/.Xmodmap. I don't know if these are
sourced the same way in 4.0 as 3.3, but I in ~/.Xmodmap I put:

keycode 78 = Multi_key

which binds the "Scroll Lock" key to "Compose" (on PC101).  You can use
a different keycode, of course.

Bis Später,
