I'm from India but mostly just using the default "US" keyboard layout. I tried to modify it to input the Indian Rupee Sign U+20B9. I modified /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/us as follows:

    key <AE04> {    [         4,    dollar,      U20B9, U00A7 ]    }; // 20B9 = indian rupee sign, 00A7 = section sign

Of course, I cleaned out the old *.xkm in /var/lib/xkb/, rebooted etc but still I am not able to input U+20B9 using my level 3 key (Win key) though I am getting U+00A7 section mark using level 4 (Win+Shift).

I tried to remap the character to another key (R) but that didn't work either. I tried to use the inbuilt:

    include "rupeesign(4)"

... but that didn't work either. I am using Kubuntu Trusty 64 bit.
