I'm having trouble making AltGr work on ubuntu so I can type 3rd level characters (@£§,{[],etc) it so happens that RCtrl+RAlt don't work either so I have no way of typing such characters.

My RCtrl seems mapped to the same as AltGr (Altgr is mapped to both 108 and 64), 64 being RControl.

Here's the problem, if I change the mapping to get AltGr printing @'s, I have to map 64 to Mode_switch. If I do that I lose the ability of using RControl to Control_R, so no more control shortcuts, like Ctrl+C and Ctrl-V.

I either have Ctrl+C or '@'s', and I need both. Is there a way to fix this, maybe mapping RCtrl to another keymap?
