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
