It's been so long since I've been active here--last time we were still using spionic.
I checked the sticky threads about this but they don't seem up-to-date (and the windows one has an empty post...).
Can someone recap how to write greek letters in the forum? Then I can update the instruction threads.
What I use and it seems to me pretty much everyone uses is utf8. I have linux fedora installed and while it is possible that I had to check an option when I installed it I think utf8 was the default in any case. Hence I don't know what to advise people who need to do somethig special to get utf8 setup.
Getting a Greek keyboard is a little trickier -
To set it up I need to run:
"setxkbmap 'gb,gr' -variant ',polytonic' -option 'grp:alt_shift_toggle' ,grp_led:scroll"
from the command line. (gb for a uk keyboard as the alternative so that would be different for others)
