I have a Dell Latitude E5250 laptop working on ubuntu. I could not figure out how to type '@' symbol. keyboard setting is "Turkish", with Q keyboard.

  • Press SHIFT + 2. That's all. But your question will be closed because it has nothing to do with Ubuntu. – user284234 Jul 16 '15 at 6:55
  • @begueradj you'd be surprised. If the keyboard layout is not set to US, shift+2 may produce something else altogether. I think it gives " in the UK layout. And since the layout can be set in Ubuntu... – muru Jul 16 '15 at 6:56

    @mustafa özgür Berke try right Alt + 2, left Alt and Right Alt have a different result in Ubuntu, also by clicking at the language keyboard menu icon you can click on Show Layout Chart and there you will see if you should use right or left Alt with which key. – Mike Jul 16 '15 at 9:19

Try Alt on right Alt gr+q Beware that left Alt and right Alt have a different result in Ubuntu.

By clicking at the language keyboard menu icon, you can click on Show Layout Chart and you will see in right lower corner what will actually work with right Alt.
