That's useful if you sometimes use one language & sometimes another,
but I simply want to insert Greek words into an otherwise English text,
which I can do easily with Gvim, but can't get to work in Kwrite/Kate.
I've done some further investigation which is described under the bug above
& it seems clear it really is a bug in KDE, ie for compose-key to work
you have to be running the full KDE desktop, not eg Fluxbox,
which conflicts with KDE's claim to be a "software collection".
Any other suggestions wb welcome, but please check the KDE bug first.
