Either you can enable an Compose key, or you can press CtrlShiftU followed by the Unicode hexadecimal number of the character (leading zeroes can be skipped). For example, Æ is CtrlShiftU, then C6. This works on GNOME Terminal, Terminator, Google Chrome and a number of other applications, with Xterm (and according to comments, Emacs) not working. On GNOME, ...

You're looking for headless with X. It's little bit described on ArchWiki, there's shown a way how to do this. There's another alternative to run headless X11 compatible server: Xvfb(X virtual framebuffer). It's a display server that performs all graphical operations in memory without showing any screen output. startx is just front-end for xinit which ...

All¹ X11 programs open their windows on the display indicated by the environment variable DISPLAY. Thus: sudo -u 1000 env DISPLAY=:0 xev or for that matter, since you can run programs as a different user from the X server, just DISPLAY=:0 xev :NUMBER is the notation for local displays; in most scenarios, the X11 server that is running on the console is ...

Key chords (like Shift+\) are specified by combining one key with a set of modifiers, not by combining keys directly. So rather than “keycode 50 plus keycode 21”, what you need to specify is “keycode 21 plus the Shift modifier”. Only modifiers can be used in combinations. Furthermore xmodmap is somewhat limited: you need to specify all the key chords for a ...

Typically X is started with the startx command or by starting the service associated with your display manager (mdm for you), which then starts an X server for you. You can probably fix this by running service mdm restart as root on one of your terminals.

The best way is still to type the character on your keyboard. Thanks to XKB, you can bind arbitrary Unicode characters to key combinations. For instance, I can type directly: ← → ↑ ↓ … € ½ « » — − ± ≠ ∩ ∪ ⊂ ∧ ∨ ∀ ∃ √ ∞ ≤ ≥, etc. Note: in the particular case of GNU Emacs, Unicode composition can be done via Ctrlx+8+Return. See Ctrlx+8+Ctrlh for additional ...

The Arch Linux wiki has a detailled article about configuring the keyboard. If you want to set it only for your user (after login), you can put the setxkbmap command in your ~/.xprofile or ~/.xinitrc. As explained in the wiki, if you want the setting to be global you can create a Xorg configuration file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-keyboard.conf : Section ...

Comments in GNU libc sources (intl/l10nflist.c:_nl_normalize_codeset) state: There is no standard for the codeset names. Codeset names are normalized by that function to all-lowercase with all non-alphanumeric characters stripped i.e. "UTF-8" turns into "utf8". The locale names inside the locale archive are using normalized codeset names. Since ...

You need to forward your X connection: ssh -X user@pi You'll probably need xauth installed on the Pi as well. Given that you're running via PuTTY on Windows, here are a couple of other things to try: plain crawl should work fine, it doesn't use graphics at all (it's the "console" version if you're downloading from the Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup web ...

You should kill your Display Manager to switch all frontends of the xserver off. It could be: mdm - MATE Display Manager gdm - Gnome Display Manager kdm - KDE Display Manager xdm - X Window Display Manager The corresponding one should be killed. E.g: sudo killall mdm To start a plain xserver you should type this command: sudo X More info here. ...

The following will probably work for you: #!/bin/sh unset X Y; sleep 1 eval "$(xdotool getmouselocation -shell 2>/dev/null)" for n in X Y; do : "$(($n-=$n>25?25:$n))"; done xwd -root -silent | xv - -crop "$X" "$Y" 50 50 \ -geometry "50x50+$X+$Y" \ -nodecor -viewonly -rv -quit It depends on the three utilities xv, ...
