How do you type @ on a French Canadian keyboard

  • Are you asking specifically on Ubuntu? Normally it's Alt+2. – Arronical Aug 25 '16 at 15:09

Most likely AltGr-0 as reported in this Wikipedia article on AZERTY layout. Or if that doesn't work try AltGr-2, It's for Canadian French QWERTY based

    Please don't confuse Alt and AltGr. They are not exactly the same. AltGr is there where on US Keyboards, is the right Alt key. It is specifically used to generate "special" characters and is very common on European keyboards. Hitting Left-Alt will not work. Read all about it on wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AltGr_key – jawtheshark Aug 25 '16 at 15:42

In gnome-shell (Gnome 3) you can view currently using layout's hereimage/map/blueprint to see exactly where all symbols are located.

Go to settings->keyboard->input sources->select your layout-> click on keyboard icon and it will pop out.

Even faster just click Show Keyboard Layout under layout chooser in gnome's top bar if there is.
