Bug Description

There are still some problems with Turkish keyboard in 17.04:

* The currency is updated as ₺ at 17.04 but there is no way to type it by keyboard. By the standard, it should be Alt Gr + T key to type ₺:

Some keys' behaviors are different from Windows, so for those, it can be considered as any update or not, but for any case, I am also reporting:

* For the letter ã, Alt Gr + Ü key should be pressed then a key should be pressed.

* Beside that, Alt Gr + S returns ß in Windows but something else in Ubuntu 17.04.

As regards the Turkish currency symbol, it was changed in xkb-data 2.20 as a fix of <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99187>. However, Ubuntu 17.04 is shipped with version 2.19 of the xkb-data package, so this will be fixed when 2.20 reaches Ubuntu (in 17.10 or 18.04).

As regards the other things you list, it looks to me as if you basically would like to see a complete rewrite of the Turkish keyboard layout.

Currently <AltGr>+<Shift>+Ü followed by A results in ā.

Currently <AltGr>+<Shift>+Ü followed by O results in ō.

Currently <AltGr>+Ü results in ~ (without space).

> * For the letter æ, Alt Gr + A should be pressed

Currently the æ symbol is not present with the Turkish layout AFAICT.

Stopping there...

To propose an update of the Turkish keyboard layout, I have to ask you to file an upstream bug.
