You can modify your keymap to include a lot---but not all, it seems---Unicode characters. Try looking at the program XKeyCaps, but I've found that to not work for me so I'm slowly writing a replacement in Python as a way of learning it. Alternatively, if you're running GTK2 (Gnome2) apps, right click and you should get an 'Input Methods' menu and select which you want, and then copy-and-paste to the app you want. A lot quicker than using a charmap dialog. Tristan.
