Cannot set a compose key anymore
Submitted by Jehan
I just updated to Fedora 26 and am up-to-date. gnome-tweak-tool 3.24.1-2.fc26 gnome-shell 3.24.3-2.fc26
Using the same config as previously, but I lost my compose key capability (on CapsLock). Checking the tweak tool GUI, it is still checked though. I tried to set it on Right Alt, or Right Ctrl as well but no more luck. Looks like the Compose key feature is broken in GNOME Tweak Tool 3.24 (unless it is broken at a lower level). ;-(
- Open GNOME Tweak Tool
- Go to tab "Typing"
- Under "Position of Compose key", set to "Caps Lock"
- Under "Caps Lock behavior", make sure it is still "Disabled"
Expected result: Caps Lock should now be able to be used as a Compose key. For instance holding CapsLock+e+` should input "è".
Result: Caps Lock key does nothing. Holding CapsLock+e+
