I've got a US keyboard (I do live there after all), but I
sometimes need to make the English currency sign. Can I do

<shift>-3 or <alt-gr>-3

Perhaps you already have this:
Control Center -> Regional & Accessibility -> Keyboard Layout

Check 'Enable keyboard layouts'
Add U.S. English w/ deadkeys

Click Apply

In the taskbar, select the 'U.S. English w/ deadkeys' keyboard

- press the 'Compose'-key (<Shift>-<Alt>, hold down <Shift> while pressing
- press '=' (*Nothing* should appear now)
- press 'L' (Pound sign should appear)



Thanks so much!!!

That worked!
