    Phoronix: Scheiße! KDE Plasma 5.21 To Add Palette For Easier Input Of Accented Characters

    KDE developers have been busy so far in December making improvements from seemingly never-ending Wayland improvements to new features like easier support for accented character input without having to remember key sequences or changing your keyboard layout...

    phoronix Are you aware, that "Scheiße!" means "shit" in german?

    Not sure why the title of the article starts with that.

      Well aware. It was the first word I thought of this morning for how this feature will come in handy for my typing at least

        Because ß is a "accented character" maybe by some standards?

          For the fun of it.

          In the good old days when Sun was still shining their keyboards had a compose key in order to create such letters. I'm still using this key but now mapped to the right "Windows" Key (right super key). So ß can be composed with RWin-s-s and Motörhead with Rwin-o-"...

              I also think the example word is quite misplaced and I wondered what's going on here with using that kind of words.

              If you need something else, why not Me⃛täldötṥ or something that is not so offensive?

                Zażółć gęślą jaźń. Well, there are no accented characters or diacritics in that sentence actually, despite what you might think at a first glance. These are separate letters, not "normal" letters with accents.

                If you actually read the blog post, you will see it is not about "accented characters", but in general alternative characters, so ß does fit into that.

                  Thank you for your valuable input. We created a commission to investigate into the alleged misconduct and/or misdemeanor of Michael at the International Council Of Mildly Offended And Vaguely Paranoid Society, the verdict is due out this Monday. Stay tuned.
