How can I find out what ctrl+shift+e is binded to? I use this shortcut in multiple applications but it seems to be intercepted by gnome.

It shows an @ symbol and allows me to enter characters like ๐Ÿ•.

Look in the control panel the keboard for the keyboard short cuts

I can't get that combination to do anything in various applications in F24 and F25. So you must have something different.

ctrl+shift+e is bound to the new IBus Emoji Typing. See here for more information on that change in Fedora 25:

For me at least, I had to add a "Typing Booster" input source in addition to my regular US English input source for this key binding to become active. If you have one of those listed under the input sources in the "Region and Language" settings, and you don't need it for your input (I guess if you're using a non-latin character set then you probably do?), then consider removing it.

I don't see anything in either the input source options or the keyboard shortcut options to change this key binding, so if you still need a typing booster input source, consider opening a bug at to allow that to be customized (I could be wrong, maybe it can be already, but I can't see it).

Your link didn't work, the page is I can't figure out how to get the emoji input source to work, but that's ok. Maybe I'll look around later to see what I'm missing.

@Samuel Sieb, argh, thanks. I'll fix it. I may try to do a screencast also to show how I got it setup.

After disabling the keyboard shortcut for EmojiTyping via ibus-setup, Ctrl+Shit+e generates an underlined 'e' in any text field, thereby also overwriting the shortcut for "track-changes" in libreoffice; seems to be more than ibus-setup?!
