I have to write much german umlauts, pre fedora 19 I used the compose sequences, but in fedora 19 the keyboard style options to enable it are gone. Where can I enable the compose key? Should I really tweak xorg.conf or something?

The keyboard layout settings have moved to:

Settings --> Region & Language --> Input Sources

There you can set a second keyboard, and use for instance dead-keys. I'm not sure about the compose key

Maybe these questions will also help you: #28468 #27872


After searching a bit I found that the Compose key can be enabled in the keyboard shortcuts menu

Settings --> Keyboard --> Shortcuts --> Typing --> Compose key

I've set it to right alt, and it worked right away!
