I have dual boot configuration with Fedora and Windows XP. Keyboard is normal US standard keyboard. Now that I am working for a UK based client, I need to use pound sign quite often. Currently I am copy pasting it, and it is a bit annoying. If it is possible to type pound sign using US keyboard, then that will be great. Please post any method you know other than copy pasting.
On Windows and Linux, use the "U.S. International" keyboard layout, which is US with additional modifiers and characters used abroad. The £ is on
You can also get £ on Windows by entering
On Mac OS X, simply press
Option-3 for £, or use the British layout, where £ and # are exchanged (
Shift-3). Otherwise, they're very similar (check with Keyboard Viewer).
I can't manage to have my sterling sign associated with my keyboard command. It's a Portuguese Brazil ABNT2 layout (set to Portuguese (Brazil) language). In Windows, it works easily by using CTRL + ALT + 4, but tried all combinations for Ubuntu (14.04 LTS) and just can't make it work.
Difficult situation for a Brazilian accountant in the UK haha
-----> SOLVED (by trial and error lol)
altGr + shift + 4 = ¼ altGt + Tab + 4 = ££££
yaaaay (the bad thing is that everytime I press tab it moves to the next cell)
