rogue keyboard on Linux 

Hey programming Mastodon!
Anyone whose Corsair keyboard utterly refuses to type a hashtag character?
I mean:
--> ‘ instead of @ (now on AltGr-Q)
--> ’ instead of hashtag (**nowhere** on the keyboard)

Also, Alt+NNN for keycodes does **not** work. Dunno if it did, always used AltGr etc.

Tried `dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration` and all alternative settings. No way.

I have a Dell XPS 13 w/ an Italian kbd + a Corsair K70 RGB, running Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS. Thanks!
