No matter which one of the 5 available Danish keyboard layouts I choose from, the @ symbol (at) is always Alt-2 instead of the Alt-', which is normal on Danish Mac keyboards.

The answer to No keyboard layout in keyboard preferences to match Danish macbook doesn't fix this.

If there is not an easy way to fix this without manually changing all the keys, could I use the following text to automate this?

2:              qwertyuiopå¨

This looks like an issue that must be fixed by Canonical. I do not see how I could offer a fix. It may be an issue with the localization and/or the Apple hardware support for Ubuntu. Try submitting a bug report to Canonical by going to Launchpad.net. Find Ubuntu, and then report this bug. Include a link to this page so the developers can see your descriptive images. I am sure they will take your problem very seriously.

Edit (2021-04-11):

After having to setup a Macbook with Ubuntu again (almost 8 years after asking this question!), I created dk_mac_fixed-layout, which fixes some keys.


Old answer:

By searching launchpad.net I found several bugs about this.

One of the people mentioned a fix, with the instructions here: http://howto.praqma.net/ubuntu/keyboard

This keyboard is not exactly the correct Danish MacBook keyboard layout, but it is much better than the one that comes with Ubuntu.
