I want to type the Indian Rupee Symbol. So I went to System Settings >> Keyboard Layout and clicked on the
Options button. Under the
Adding Currency signs to keys sections, I checked the
Rupee on 4 option.
Later when I opened the Layout Chart of the Keyboard there was Rupee sign in the
4 key but I do not know how to type the symbol. What combination of the keys will type the Rupee symbol on the screen?

Note: You need to change your keyboard setting to English (India, with rupee sign) as default for this to work.

For using rupee symbol (
₹) go to insert → then symbol → then select rupee symbol → then go to shortcut key → there you put new shortcut key as ( Alt+ 4) → then assign.
After that you may use this symbol by Alt+ 4 from next time.

For 16.04 LTS
right side ALT + 4 while using English (India, with rupee sign ) keyboard layout.
Simply type " Text Entry " in dash and you will be able to select/add keyboard layouts. This works in 16.04 LTS.
