I think this is largely a matter of getting your Terminal program to
work with UTF-8 characters. I use KDE's Konsole, so for me, this is a
matter of going to Settings > Edit Current Session > Advanced, and
setting "Default character encoding: UTF-8".
From a shell prompt, I can type
<Compose> " u
and get the character ü (u with an umulat), and I can type
<Compose> | c
and get the character ¢ (the symbol for cents).
I get the same results with ed, vi, and emacs -nw.
<Compose> means "the compose key", and you may have to configure it
via your window manager. The key sequences themselves are listed in
This is generally about as much UTF-8 as I need.
To see a list of UTF-8 fonts on your system,
xlsfonts | grep 10646
should show the ones that are available.
I hope that helps.
