Moving away from using gnome-terminal and terminator since they are excruciatingly slow. (20-30 seconds to change focus to them for whatever reason)
xterm is nice and fast. However, I need to be able to type certain unicode characters in vim for documents I am working on. With gnome-terminal and terminator I could do ctrl+shift+u + hex code, however that does not work in xterm.
How do I type arbitrary unicode characters in xterm?
OS is Debian 8.
