Keyboard missing characters


I have had problems with my keyboard lately. I try to type some characters I was able to type in Windows with a French Canadian keyboard. The characters are those you can type with Ctrl+Alt+Numbers and others. For example, I can't do the A sign in an email. It looks like this


No "at" sign...

Any help appreciated. Thanks!

How did you configure the keyboard during install?

You may check your XF86Config file for the character set... or use the characther map to bring up those characters. Usually the @ sign would be by pressing Alt Gr+q or Alt Gr+2 (on my LATAM keyboard, anyways )
