Pidgin and accented characters
ratcatcher - January 28, 2010 - 1:21pm
Forgive me if this is an FAQ but I've searched Pidgin's own site and can find no reference to it.
How does one type accented characters in a Pidgin IM window?
If I'm using most other programmes (including Thunderbird and Windows Live Messenger) I get é by using CTRL+ALT+e, í with CTRL+ALT+i and so on (as I'm doing now). I can also get the Euro symbol € by typing CTRL+ALT+4.
These key combinations don't work in Pidgin.
In Ireland we use € and in Irish one uses áéíóú (accent is called a fada but is the same as the French acute).
