I want to create my own keyboard shortcuts to insert special characters that I’m used to.
Examples include using Ctrl+Shift+:, a to get ä, or Ctrl+’, a to get á.
I’m using Ubuntu 12.04. Actually defining this system-wide would be useful to.
I’m expressly not interested in any other method, including clicking on a character on a character map, using a single special-character combination to include all characters of my own definition, or using the lengthy numeric codes on the numpad.
