I used to use the key combination Ctrl + Alt + 2 when I wanted to type "@".

This doesn't work in Linux. The only thing that works here is the key combination Alt Gr + 2.

So, does this mean, that my keybord is not fully supportet by MX Linux?

I tried the following:

I also tried out:
Switzerland Legagy

But was not successful.

When I press Shift + 2, I get -> "

Which is right. This works as it should.

According to
Alt Gr / Ctrl + Alt

It's the same issue with # [ ] { }

Do we know that Xfce's keyboard accepts 3-key shorrtcuts?

Please paste the contents of this config file:

@Duliwi: do you get any options on that keyboard when you click that "Edit" button I see in your image?
