okay every now and then my keyboard outputs the wrong symbols or atleast the french symbols

I have keyboard set to asus laptop usa...

? gives a e with an accent on it
pound # gives /

and a few other strangness but 90% of the keyboard keeps working, it comes and goes at random

I fought for 30 min trying to find a pound sign to join a irc channal

I heard there is a fix for this and it's because the computer is canadian... any idea??/

not really an ubuntu issue but it is a ubuntu laptop I"m bitching from hehe

Have you gone to System-->Preferences-->Keyboard and set the layout to USA? I'm Canadian and I never bother setting the keyboard as Canadian.
