Keyboard gone crazy on Ubuntu - diacriticals everywhere!


My ubuntu keyboard insists on diacriticals and not normal characters. For example, instead of double quote l I get an accented character. How do I switch this infuriating behavior off?

Check your keyboard configuration in your system settings.

Try this one.

System>Preferences>Keyboard

Go to layout tab.
Check your keyboard layout if it is under USA layout.

Or

Click Reset to Default.


Maybe this one help
