It works. I tested it in LM 19.3 MATE: Terminal, Firefox, Libre Office and text editor Xed.
Perhaps it does work for you, but it doesn't for me, that's why I've made the post.

So what was the exact keysequence you used then? (it used to be Ctrl+Shift+u)

Re: No Unicode Input

Sorry for the delay rene - been busy. The key sequence was pretty universally accepted - it worked in text editors, web browsers, and even OpenOffice.

Shame it just doesn't work like it used to :(

No Unicode Input

Used to be I could press Ctrl+Shift+u to enter unicode characters. Haven't been able to find a solution that applies to Mint 19.3. :(

Re: Who hates MATE?

I don't hate it, but it sure does irritate me sometimes. And it's disappointing to see the steps back, but it probably has a lot to do with the transition to GTK3. My biggest peeve with the last version I was using (on Mint "Rosa") is caja - a right turtle that thing can become (now I do a...

MATE Rearranges Window List Items

Well, as the topic suggests, the items (programs) on the "window list" keep rearranging themselves at random times and it's quite flipping me out. It almost seems like the panels themselves are crashing, but it's hard to say. I'm running Mint 19.3 with MATE 1.22.2, and have two panels runn...

Re: LMDE3 - Install Complete MATE Desktop

Thanks for posting this. Going to have to try it out... I'll of course report back how things went. Kinda sorry to see a default LMDE without a MATE version..... though if all else fails, I suppose I can live with Cinnamon.

Install issues - an error and no TTY# consoles

Greetings Minters! I just upgraded from Mint 13 to 17.3 recently, and I just want to start by saying how impressed I am with how things have matured and refined. Mint truly is my D.O.C. :D. Things have been mostly pretty smooth and clean - with a couple of exceptions of me breaking the system with d...

I just tried to email his personal email address and it got bounced back to me. It has been a couple years since we've chatted, but I was very taken aback by the failed sent message. Does anyone know him and/or know what happened to him? :cry:

Re: Weather Applet (Weather Report 1.8.1) Dead?

Here is how to fix this, no matter your version of Mint (I'm still running 13, for the moment) Enable sources downloading in APT. You can do this in the System / Administration / Software and Updates dialog, by checking the Source code item in the Ubuntu software tab. You can also enable them in the...

Yes, go to your System Monitor and click on the 'File System' tab (if you use Gnome, MATE, and possibly XFCE). That will show you usage of any drive that is mounted, including /. If you use KDE check out KDiskFree.
