I'm in Belgium (french part) and I cannot find the proper keyboard layout in Settings > Region and Languages > Input Sources. the closest I found is the french (AZERTY) one but for the symbols such as ! and _ it's not the same keys... what can I do to solve it ? Thank you.

  • So, basically, you're doing it wrong by selection French instead of Belgium. Both AZERTY but have slight differences. Keyboard layouts are usually by country, not by language. – user880592 Apr 12 '19 at 18:05
  • Thanks but my version of ubuntu is 18.04 not 14.04 – Julien B. Apr 12 '19 at 18:07
  • I can't find french(belgium) in the list – Julien B. Apr 12 '19 at 18:08
  • Again, you should be looking for BELGIUM, not French. And the version of Ubuntu doesn't matter. It was always like this. – user880592 Apr 12 '19 at 18:09

You may have hit this issue. In that case you can generate a Belgian locale, e.g.:

sudo locale-gen fr_BE.UTF-8

Then you should be able to click French and find some Belgian layout options in the sub menu which opens.
