Punctuation Keymap of the German Keyboard Layout for Ubuntu.

The keymap for the punctuation and other glyphs depends on the keyboard layout and the operating system. The punctuation signs for German keyboards are relatively easy to use with Ubuntu Linux. Other Linux distributions ship with the same layout — as far as I know.
