C.1 Disabling/Enabling the Compose Key
IA only -
The Compose key is defined to be Ctrl-Shift-F1 on IA--based systems.
If you do not use the Compose key, you can disable it so that you do
not press it inadvertently. First, find out the keycode for Multi_key:
$ xmodmap -pk | grep Multi_key
Your system displays a line similar to:
nn 0xff20 (Multi_key)
The important piece of information is the two-digit keycode number at
the beginning of the line, represented by nn. Use this keycode number to construct
the following line in your .xinitrc file:
xmodmap -e 'keycode nn = NoSymbol'
To re-enable the Compose key, comment out the previous line in your .xinitrc file and restart the OpenWindows software.
