#16546: Pidgin does not support the compose key
 Reporter:  ewirch   |      Owner:
     Type:  defect   |     Status:  new
Milestone:           |  Component:  pidgin (gtk)
  Version:  2.10.11  |   Keywords:
 Some keyboard layouts have a compose key
 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compose_key) to create characters from two
 key presses. Pidgin prints a weird box with four zeros when the compose
 key is pressed (instead of waiting for the composed char).

 This happens for example on Windows 7 using the Dvorak for Programmers
 keyboard layout (http://www.kaufmann.no/roland/dvorak/).

 Please add support for the compose key.
