    Fortunately it s pretty simple Each line begins with a code that defines the key typically this will be A for alphanumeric A E rows 1 to 5 bottom to top 1 12 key position in the row going left to right After the key is defined you can offer up to four values which will correspond with what the key will produce by itself with Shift with AltGr usually the right Alt key and Shift AltGr respectively So for example let us consider the following line key AD07 u U uacute Uacute So from the code we know that this key on the alphanumeric keyboard fourth row from bottom seventh from the left If you found the letter U good job Now we see that by itself it produces u with Shift U with AltGr ú and with Shift AltGr Ú You can substitute these names with their Unicode equivalents for example the Unicode ID for Ú is U00DA so you could erase Uacute and replace it with U00DA and get the same character I did this when inserting my characters simply because I didn t know all their names and you can be absolutely precise when picking your character Installation In Ubuntu and I assume most Debian based flavors of Linux if not more the keyboard layout files are located in usr share X11 xkb symbols If you don t find it there look it up for your system and it should be fairly easy to locate Now the first thing to do is decide which keyboard you want to modify I chose the US alternative international keyboard since alternative is a good word to describe what we re doing First thing s first you ll want to backup your keyboard so in case you run into any problems you can restore the original without any hassle All this will have to be done through the terminal using the sudo command Here are the steps you ll go through Open a terminal Type cd usr share X11 xkb symbols or the appropriate directory Type sudo cp us us backup this makes your backup Type sudo gedit us or choose your favorite text editor Once the document is opened search for Alternative International group it was the third one down for me Highlight the text from partial alphanumeric keys down to Delete the text and copy the layout below in its place Save the document quit and log out When you log back in go to the Keyboard Layout preference hit the button and add English US alternative international to your list of layouts If you run into problems you can always sudo rm us and then restore the original by typing sudo cp us backup us Here is the code to copy over partial alphanumeric keys xkb symbols alt intl name Group1 English US alternative international include us key TLDE grave asciitilde dead grave dead tilde key AE01 1 exclam exclamdown questiondown key AE02 2 at U02BE key
