    Anyone know how to enable a compose key combination? Using IceWM here.

    (possibly I’ve misinterpreted the question, but)

    press and hold Ctrl+Shift and press u
    The text cursor will change, displaying an underlined u, awaiting your input of a unicode codepoint.
    If you change your mind, pressing Esc will revert to normal text cursor.

    I tried it in a terminal and noticed that ctrl-sh-u plus hex digits gives you the ascii character with that value.

    I’m looking for the compose key that lets you type a non-standard character. For example, if you press the compose key and release it, then type ~n, it will result in the n with the ~ above it. Another example is to press and release the compose key and then type ee. The result will be an upside down e. The KDE desktop lets you define the compose key. I’m not familiar enough with IceWM to figure out how to do it.

    I found the setting. Under Preferences / Keyboard Layout, I can assign the compose key.
