Compose character menu item doesn't show

Asked by William Pabon

I installed Ooo3.2 on an old pc with ubuntu 10.04 LTS and on a laptop with ubuntu 10.10. On both cases the Compose character menu item (Insert | Compose character) doesn't show on the word processor. I tried reinstalling the application but didn't solve the issue. I knew about the compose character because I have another pc installation in which Ooo3.2 has the compose character. Your help will be appreciated to solve this issue.

The 'Compose Character' option is an OOo extension.

You find the installation details here:

Is this what you are referring too?
