Press combination and type:

gnome-keyboard-properties

Choose layout tab, and push the parameters button, in opened window, you will need to choose "Compose key position". For example - let's select Caps Lock. That's it. Try for press Caps Lock, then "o" then "c" keys on your keyboard - you should get this symbol - © Also, link
