    What keyboard layout are you using? Try change it back to USA keyboard layout.
    Or, try deleting the file .Xmodmap in your home directory if you have it. The file is hidden, so choose to show all files in the file browser.

    I hope you know how to get there , other wise type keyboard in unity dash(Alt+f2) . it will take you there .
    Dont miss anything even it is small. one small pin is enough to bring down a man.

    Hey thanks..I got into the result of alt+f2, however, once I found .xmodmap I couldn't delete it. How do I do that? I tried right click etc..
