Fedora and Gnome have excellent built in support for typing in many foreign languages. However it is inconvenient to change an entire input method for example, just to enter a special character like ë. These special characters are found at the gnome special characters application which has many useful characters. However I am finding difficulty finding a way to create a shortcut to any of them like there are in Windows. Is anybody familiar with this or knows a way how to do this? Thanks in advance.

You want a compose key. Should be quick and easy to configure!
