Is there an easy way to create a custom keyboard layout in ubuntu. I have seen the many posts about the custom keyboard layouts, but they seemed long for what I need. All need is an American keyboard layout with a £ built-in. Yes I know the international us layout has it in but that keyboard layout makes typing " very hard. If there is some sort of tool which will allow me to do this easily then that would be great.

Thanks to @Gunnar Hjalmarsson for the answer. Found there is a keyboard layout with what I wanted already on it. Although it has so many unnecessary keys on it I just wanted a simple US layout with the £ and working ", with this keyboard layout there are so many unused keys which I would never use. It's not the end of the world. I can bare with it. It's fine.

    I kind of thought that creating a custom layout for only that symbol would be to overdo it. Good to hear that my suggestion proved to fit your needs. – Gunnar Hjalmarsson May 3 at 13:39
