Hi Guys,
my laptop dual-boots Arch Linux and Windows 7, but I don't use Windows much. But I tried out [Shift + Alt Gr]<< for « on Windows 7 and it didn't work :(. I knew I preferred Linux but I didn't realise [Shift + Alt Gr] was part of the reason.


So I installed /UK International keyboard/ from http://www.zolid.com/uk-intl-kb/index.htm and that seems to do the trick, using [Alt Gr + [] and [Alt Gr +]] from:



Now I'm heading back to Arch Linux, and my main desktop PC, as soon as possible.
Hope this helps someone.

John

Keybindings are an arcane rabbit-hole, especially cross-platform.

For those on windoze I highly recommend getting into AutoHotKey; in fact now I'm on Linux I really miss it, wish the Linux version had gained a bit more traction, one of the VERY few things causes me any nostalgia for windoze.

    Hi Udo

    have you tried [Shift + Alt Gr]>> for « and  [Shift + Alt Gr]<< for «.

    Works OK on my Arch Linux system.

    :)

        Hello,

        I need guillemets/angle quotes in my text, see
        Guillemet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guillemet

        The corresponding Windows keystrokes are
        [Alt+0187] for '»' and [Alt+0171] for '«'
        but Zim doesn't support [ALT+NumpadNumber].

        And I can't use the Symbol dialog, because I use automation
        for inserting these symbols.

        Any hints?


        Many thanks and greetings
        Udo
