How do I type an `@` (at sign) symbol?
Make sure you selected the right keyboard layout. Go to
System Settings, click on
Keyboard Layout. On the
Layouttab you should see a
+button. Select the most appropriate keyboard layout as shown bellow.
I am not using a Macbook, but the first layout worked as you described to type
@. I suppose you are using Ubuntu 11.10.
yes, im using 11.1 . the first one didnt work also. i guess because it's a mac keyboard. if I press the alt key the current program running shows the options bar(file, edit, view..)
In Ubuntu 14.04
System Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> Typing And define the "Alternative Character Key" I used Right Ctrl Key.
Combine this key with Q or 2.
With Ubuntu 12.04 on a Macbook Danish keyboard, I get the @ sign with the right Alt+2. It doesn't work with the left alt key as normally on the Mac.
Actually, that's how I do that, but I'm on a Windows Keyboard, AZERTY-Belgium.
To get the @ symbol I just press Shift+2, and it works for me on both Windows and Linux Mint. What I am trying to do now is find out how to get a ÷ sign on the keyboard, as right now I copy and paste to get the ÷ symbol... LOL
I have a macbook pro model 2,2 I found a way to map the 3rd symbol easily. In ubuntu 12.04, in system setting -> keyboard configuration, choose options, there is a option called 3rd level (in spanish Tecla para seleccionar el 3er nivel), I chose the numeric intro that is the right key beside the right mac cmd key, and there you have it presing that key plus 2 I get the at symbol.
