On some system (depending on your layout config) the caret is a
dead  key, that is, it will not get displayed when pressed once,
but hold as a modifier for entering keys like αΊ₯ (which can be
produced with ^ + a). Try typing ^ + space and see whether the caret
appears. If that get's too annoying try configuring a 'nodeadkeys'
variant in your keyboard layout preferences on your linux system.



May you be peaceful, may you live in safety, may you be free from
suffering, and may you live with ease.
