Short-cut to insert Unicode Characters in Linux

I don’t know why I am so late learning this thing, but then I’d like to share it to everyone who still don’t know to insert Unicode Characters (UTF-8) directly anywhere in linux (Console, OpenOffice, Firefox ..etc).

1. Press Ctrl + Shift + U, and wait for the small “u” character to appear.

2. Then type in the corresponding hex code for that characters, here’s a widely used character here in the Philippines for example the Ñ (D1) and lower version ñ (F1).

3. Press ENTER afterwards.

4. Done.
