I'd like write special characters like the tilde (~) and back quotes, I require them for writing things inside a wiki. Is there any way to enable alt-codes on Porteus or the Composite Key? (I'd like it to be a universal method that is independent from my Desktop Environment.

'kmap=' chetcode should work:
Code: Select all
kmap=keyboardmap kmap=keyboardmap1,keyboardmap2,keyboardmap3 kmap=keyboardmap:variant ... Specifies the preferred keyboard layout for KDE/LXDE/XFCE or other desktop. A full list of supported layouts can be found in the /etc/X11/xkb/symbols folder. Up to 3 layouts are supported. Example: 'kmap=ara,us' will set the arabic keyboard layout at startup. 'kmap=ara,us' will keep arabic layout as default with possibility of switching to 'us' by 'alt+shift' key combination. Keyboard layout variants are also supported. Example: 'kmap=pl:qwertz' will set the polish keyboard layout with 'qwertz' as a variant.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
