    Wrong keyboard layout

    Hi,

    I have a UK qwerty keyboard, but Ubuntu doesn't seem to recognise the layout correctly. For example, the @ and " are switched round from how they should be.

    The mysterious thing is that the keyboard layout in System Settings is absolutely correct. But in any application (chromium, terminal, nautilus) the keys come out wrong.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks very much

    Did you compare the lay-out of the hardware keyboard with the lay-out presented, if you press the small keyboard icon. That small icon is found under the left box with "English (UK)" as presented by the system settings.

    Maybe you have an English UK, Macintosh keyboard. You can use the + icon to check all possible UK lay-outs.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Yes, when I press the small keyboard icon I get the correct keyboard layout. My keyboard is nothing special, it is just a perfectly standard UK layout. It's the Logitech Wireless K270: http://www.logitech.com/en-gb/keyboards/keyboards/7990
