How do you quickly insert a 💩 emoji when using your laptop? I just type ScrLck, p, o, o!
What is this 🧙♀️ craft?
In your keyboard settings, you should see an option like this:
You can set the "Compose" key to be anything you like. Personally, I use the otherwise-useless
Scroll Lock button.
Now, once you press ScrLck you'll see this symbol .
The next few letters you type will be "absorbed" by that symbol and combined to make something new.
You can see the default symbols in
You can add your own, either in the file or in
The short-cuts you type are case-sensitive. Typing ScrLck, f, u does nothing, but typing ScrLck, F, U will get you 🖕!
There is a menu driven way of selecting emoji if you can't remember keyboard shortcuts.
I've shameless stolen this tip from:
I love #Linux so much!
Typing Compose+p,o,o gives you: 💩
Typing Compose+F,U gives you:🖕
I’m absolutely not making this up. It’s in the Compose map that comes with X11. (Works in the terminal but not in the browser)

Although, I've found that it does work in the browser on Wayland 🤷
