On Ubuntu, you have to use AltGr. This key is also the one you can/should use in Windows, but as Windows predates the AltGr key, they (still) treat AltGr and the combination Ctrl+Alt the same way (most of the time) whereas Ctrl+Alt is used for navigation under Ubuntu.

TL;DR In most cases the Any key is the space bar. Check your skills sudo apt-get install xautomation sudo apt-get install xbindkeys printf "%s\n\t%s\n" "\"notify-send 'Any key'\"" "space" > ./foo xbindkeys -f ./foo check your skills and after that killall xbindkeys, maybe with copy'n'paste ;) BTW, I have the Any key. Works great. Source

I believe that you can use a keyboard layout called "Indian". I am new to Hindi (started a self-study of it last month), but from looking at images on the net for InScript and comparing it to what I see for "Indian" they look the same. To get the "Indian" keyboard layout, I went to "System Settings" then chose "Text Entry" then selected the "+" to add an ...

In Kubuntu 15.04, after replacing cedillas for the /usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/Compose as described by others above, only qt-based apps were OK. After that, I installed ibus-gtk and ibus-gtk3 and it fixed my problem to firefox and other gtk-based apps as well.

Remove the ibus-deamon item in Startup Applications. Open Language Support, and select IBus as the "Keyboard input method system". Log out and log in again. Now the input source indicator should be visible in the menu bar, and the m17n options available in Text Entry.

I had a similar problem and this post helped me. I am also using Ubuntu 14.04 and the answer of Steve B worked fine. Keyboardlayout Fix It is not exactly the same but maybe it also helps with your problem.

Take a look at xmodmap. If you want to have the changes you did with it persist, create a script in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d and just add all the xmodmap commands you executed before, each on its own line, into it. The existing scripts there seem to be bash scripts, so start with the line #!/bin/bash You will need root permissions to create that file, ...

Perhaps adding a udev rule to run the same command when keyboard commands may solve the problem. First connect your external keyboard, and do lsusb to find the hardware ID. It would look something like Bus 002 Device 002: ID 04f2:0402 Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd Genius LuxeMate i200 Keyboar. The id is 04f2:0402. Then we add a UDEV rule. To edit the ...

So, after three days of messing around, and searching for a solution, I figured it out on accident. I was going to write a script to reset my keyboard settings, which I could setup the terminal so I would only have to hit the enter key to execute. While I was within the 'Keyboard Layout Chart,' I was checking to see what keys may map to the enter ...

AFAIK with Ubuntu 13.10, They have changed the Unity/Gnome layout managing way. So it does support multiple input engines and moved the control of layout change shortcut to higher level (window manager/settings daemon). setxkbmap works with the lower XKB level, settings daemon does not query for changes in the lower level. It just applies directly the ...
