You already have one: ≠

That works in the linux command line, and in this text field on linux:

  ctrl-shift-u2260enter
Of course now you have to find the code. I've always had luck with wikipedia. Also I'm assuming my locale, etc etc works the same for everyone.

Similar methods available for windows and mac, I imagine.




If you're in Linux, and you have a key mapped to Compose, you can hit "Compose = /" or "Compose / =" to get ≠.


On Mac I believe it's just Option-=.

Typing the more unusual characters has always been way easier on Macs. (Literally since Macs were invented.)

That used to be the case, but I find the Compose key in X is awesome: as others have noted, Compose / = → ≠ (and → is Compose - >)


That Compose system (which I haven't tried yet) does seem like a vast improvement!
