And for X11, you can use the Compose way: hit compose key and two
other (combinations of) keys in order (first Compose, then R, finally
O, with my kbd config). Compose is Shift+AltGr (in my kbd), R is
Shift+r and O is Shift+o (that is what I meant with combinations of
keys). Run xev and start hitting all combinations you can think of
until you see Compose (or Multi_key, that is the other name for it).
The full list of combinations should be avaliable as
It is a great thing of X11, fast and easy to remember for typical
combinations, but seems to get zero publicity, as well as the AltGr
(Mode_switch in xev) one, which is like using shift, but to get other
chars instead of caps (AltGr+s to get ssharp/beta ß, and AltGr+Shift+s
for section symbol §).
