This input method is defined in ISO 14755:

Hi hhielscher,

thanks for using and supporting

mci -> us:
Hi us, please have a look at this issue, thanks...
Comment 2 ulf.stroehler 2005-05-26 14:17:05 UTC
set target.
Comment 3 ulf.stroehler 2005-06-06 15:16:20 UTC
us->hdu: another Unicode compliance task.
Comment 4 2005-07-08 14:04:31 UTC
HDU->US: This is input method related stuff. PL suggests that doing this on
gnome should work in CWS pl06 or >=SRC680m114. Please reevaluate and reassign to
an input method expert if needed.
Comment 5 ulf.stroehler 2006-04-04 17:11:01 UTC
have to reassign issue.
Comment 6 eric.savary 2006-08-16 16:20:27 UTC
ES->PL: it looks like it works on KDE with gtk plugin but not on SUNRay Gnome or
Nevada default Gnome.
Comment 7 hhielscher 2006-08-16 21:19:20 UTC
Still does not work here using 2.0.165.cvs.20060506 on KDE3.5.4/Mandriva
Cooker/i586. Other applications like firefox work fine though,e.g.
Ctrl-Shift+ub6 gives ¶.

Is it possible to mark the following similar issues as duplicates of this one
(which seems to be the most up to date and the most precise) ? It could help to
merge the votes.
- Issue 66097 - Unicode input
- Issue 34050 - alternative way of entering unicode characters
- Issue 59974 - Ctrl-Shift Unicode Input Method should apply ...
- Issue 69468 - Keyboard unicode input (Ctrl+Shift+NNN) fails

Also related issue (is it possible to have only one method for all platforms,
using CTRL + SHIFT combination ?) :
- Issue 61540 - Standard MS Windows Alt-Key Unicode input fails

NB: still missing in 2.1 with Gnome 2.14.
Issue 69468 discussion is also interesting (input method change).

In gtk plugin this works because gtk handles this internally in its input
method. For the generic plugin and its derivatives (e.g. the KDE3/4 plugins) I
have now a similar solution: enter ctrl+shift+u, then a hexadecimal sequence
(while keeping ctrl+shift pressed). Release ctrl or shift or enter a non
hexadecimal code and the sequence is complete; it will the be replaced by its

for windows see issue 61540 (as of yet unsolved).
