class Gtk::IMContextSimple

Overview

Gtk::IMContextSimple is an input method supporting table-based input methods.

Compose sequences

Gtk::IMContextSimple reads compose sequences from the first of the following files that is found: ~/.config/gtk-4.0/Compose, ~/.XCompose, /usr/share/X11/locale/$locale/Compose (for locales that have a nontrivial Compose file). The syntax of these files is described in the Compose(5) manual page.

If none of these files is found, Gtk::IMContextSimple uses a built-in table of compose sequences that is derived from the X11 Compose files.

Note that compose sequences typically start with the Compose_key, which is often not available as a dedicated key on keyboards. Keyboard layouts may map this keysym to other keys, such as the right Control key.

Unicode characters

Gtk::IMContextSimple also supports numeric entry of Unicode characters by typing Ctrl-Shift-u, followed by a hexadecimal Unicode codepoint.

For example,

Ctrl-Shift-u 1 2 3 Enter

yields U+0123 LATIN SMALL LETTER G WITH CEDILLA, i.e. ģ.

Dead keys

Gtk::IMContextSimple supports dead keys. For example, typing

dead_acute a

yields U+00E! LATIN SMALL LETTER_A WITH ACUTE, i.e. á. Note that this depends on the keyboard layout including dead keys.
