Novell Cool Solutions: Question & Answer

Posted: 9 Feb 2005

Q:
How can I type out letters and symbols that don't show up on a standard English keyboard?

A:
There's a little application called KCharSelect. Open the K Menu, then select UTILITIES, then DESKTOP, and finally KCHARSELECT. Select the font you wish, and then increase the TABLE value to see different sets of characters. Select the character you seek, and click COPY TO CLIPBOARD. You can then go and paste the character wherever you need it.
