How to get these characters depends on whether you're using X or
console: Xkb support for the iBook2 seems a bit broken. There's no working
ModeShift key that could let you produce these symbols. You could revert
to something like the GNOME "Character Picker" applet. If I ever find out
how to fix the keymap, I'll post to this list, but I guess others will be
On the text console, you can use the same keystrokes as in MacOS:
hold down the Option ("alt") key and press
... to get ...
L @ (that's the letter "L", without shift)
Hope that helps at least a bit,
