I've been going around in circles with this for a while, and not getting
anywhere, so I'm wondering whether anyone here has gotten it to work...
Basically, I want to use the ISO-8859-15 input locales with X; I do a
fair bit of multi-lingual editing, and need to produce things like the
euro symbol and various European language characters. At present, X
uses the ISO-8859-1 input locales, which is okay for some things
(compose-a-' for a-acute, for example), but wrong for others
(compose-x-o for the Euro symbol - it should be compuse-C-=)... I can
force any given application to use iso-8859-15 character sets, but I
want to get the input locales to change, too.
Setting LANG=en_IE.ISO8859-15 has *some* effect, but not the desired
one. The X locale documentation seems close-to-nonexistant... does
anyone know the right way to do this?
