Havent used Fedora till now, this minute even, more used to Mandriva 2006 where the fadas are pbtained by AltGr + vowel.
Not the same result in Fedora 7!
To get the fadas you use the
AltGr + ; + vowel áéíóúý ÁÉÍÓÚÝ
AltGr + ' + vowel âêîôû ÂÊÎÔÛ
AltGr + # + vowel àèìòù ÀÈÌÒÙ
AltGr + [ + vowel äëïöü ÄËÏÖÜ
AltGr + ] + vowel ã ĩõũñ Ã ĨÕŨÑ
This is a really useful way of accessing accented characters and used to be the way in Mandriva too till they "improved" things.
Does anyone remember the good old days on Gaelic-L nuair a bhi/ fadai/ srci/obhta mar seo? Ah ca/ bhfuil mo VT100 anois?
