sort-of-n00b warning; I’ve used Linux a lot in the distant past and am only now returning to it on the Reform. I’ve never dealt with keyboard configuration details before.
I have a Reform with US keyboard layout and would like to be able to enter umlauts and other special characters.
The Reform handbook mentions that the ellipsis key ("…") is mapped to Compose, but that does not seem to be the case. In Sway, it always brings up a context menu. I have tried various ways to map ellipsis to Compose, e.g., setxkbmap -option compose:menu, all to no avail.
Also, the provided Sway config file has a line that, when uncommented, is supposed to map umlauts and such to right-ALT combinations. Uncommenting the line reveals that the mapping file it mentions (us-german-umlaut) is not found. I also couldn’t find it in the Reform OSS repositories.
Please advise - I’d prefer the Compose key solution but would be interested in answers to both my questions.
