I guess the title says it all.

  • pressing a types a
  • pressing Shift + a types A
  • (Caps lock on) pressing a types A
  • (Caps lock on) pressing Shift + a types A

On windows, (Caps lock on) pressing Shift + a types a, but I don't know why it isn't working on Ubuntu. Is this a bug or is it a "feature"? How can I fix it?

I am using an external (bluetooth) keyboard (Dell) but I can confirm that it isn't the keyboard's problem, since the problem even occurs when I use the inbuilt keyboard.

My language is set to English (India, with rupee) but it doesn't work even if I change it to English (US)

EDIT: If I change it to English (UK) it works fine... How can I make it work with English (India, with rupee)?

  • Definitely not a feature. I guess this happens on any application? Does it happen with both shift keys? – schrodigerscatcuriosity Jan 13 at 14:45
  • Works just fine on my 20.04.1 Logitech PS2 English (UK) selected keyboard connected to a standard PC. What keyboard have you set in Language and Region? Please edit you question, not add as a comment. – 24601 Jan 13 at 14:49
  • @schrodigerscatcuriosity Yes it is happening on every application, and with both shift keys. – Vthechamp Jan 13 at 14:51

  • ̠₹ is created by ctrl + shift + u then type 20b9 then space bar as a constant string. This will add the rupee symbol on the English (UK) keyboard – 24601 Jan 13 at 15:11

If using an English (UK) selected keyboard in Settings → Language and Region then the rupee symbol can be achieved by using the following key combination ctrlshiftu then type 20b9 as a constant string without releasing the keys which produces the Unicode character ₹ for the Indian rupee.

There may also be an opportunity to use a keyboard shortcut for this if required (if used frequently) with US keyboard layout selected in Settings using AltGr4 which on the Eglish(UK) will produce the Euro symbol €.

Equally, this resource provides a simple way to copy/paste the rupee symbol.

  • Thank you for your answer. Could you elaborate on the keyboard shortcut? – Vthechamp Jan 13 at 16:39
  • I did a bit of research but whilst I can get the symbol in to Keyboard Shortcuts, finding a key combination which works is a problem. Désolé. – 24601 Jan 13 at 17:53
