Question [LINUX LXLE] My double quote button in keyboard showed ¨ instead of ".


I have installed Linux LXLE 32bit in my old Asus S6 laptop. It has a button in the keyboard to type double quote. However, the double quote is not the usual double quote symbol that I know.

The double quote button showed this kind of double quote ¨ instead of the " normal one. So, Terminal code and programming is a little bit hard to do due to ¨ is not working as the same as ".

Here some example:
cd ¨My Folder¨ <--- Is not working.
cd "My Folder" <--- Is working.

Same happened with the single quote. How to fix this?

I know perhaps this is hard to understand, English is not my mother tongue. If you do not understand what I meant, please kindly to ask me, I will try to rephrase my question.

Additional question: How can you register at Linux LXLE forum? They ask for invitational code which I do not have.

What language is your keyboard using? Once I know that, we can solve the button problem. Since some languages (e.g. French, Spanish, English) have more than one keyboard, give the output of the command
setxkbmap -print

Looks like you have the umlaut (German) instead of the double quote set on that key.
