Re: Add gucharmap to the default installed apps


I think it's very useful. For example for windows users that are accustomed
to Alt + xx (like me), or when you need to write a strange character or when
you don't know the unicode code of a character.

Something else, when i do a <sudo apt-get install gucharmap> in my Lubuntu
10.10 the output is (sorry, i don't want to translate everything):
Leyendo lista de paquetes... Hecho

después de esta operación.
