Ubuntu – Cannot find pipe symbol “|” in Ubuntu server

command linekeyboardservershortcut-keys

This question might sound silly, but I'm trying to install webmin on Ubuntu server and I need to execute this command:

wget -q http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -

but I'm unable to do it, because I cannot use the pipe symbol "|". I've tried every key from my keyboard, as well single key and combination Ctrl+key or Shift+key.
I cannot copy paste as well, because Shift+Ctrl+V doesn't work neither (though I've enabled common buffer for my pc and virtual machine).

What else can I do here?

  • You can set the keyboard layout:

    $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
    

    Alternatively, you can set XKBLAYOUT value in the keyboard config file /etc/default/keyboard

    Then, apply the change by running:

    $ sudo setupcon
