I can't check this out as my Right alt + 4 gives me the € symbol, but someone 
mentioned going to KDE's control panel > Regional&Accessibility > Keyboard 
layout, then the "Xkb Options" tab. Maximise it otherwise all the options 
arn't seen. Someway down the list is a section "3rd level choosers" . It may 
be worth checking the "Press right Alt key to choose 3rd level" box, and then 
trying again with "Right Alt + 4, or Right Alt + e.
