I have Ubuntu on my MacBook 2007 with a Spanish keyboard, on MacOS the @-sign was typed using Alt (Option) + 2, but on Ubuntu I have no idea. I have to copy and paste it every time. How do I type an at sign?
Make sure you selected the right keyboard layout. Go to
System Settings, click on
Keyboard Layout. On the
Layout tab 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.
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.
