I use windows 7 on my home now

You’re using Ubuntu on DigitalOcean? What about at home/office? What are you typing on, right now – in trying to connect to your DigitalOcean cloud serverf?

I have an ubuntu droplet machine here

What kind of computer are you using, locally? Windows, Linux, Mac OS X?

This is my first time to use digitalocean and I have no idea about using droplet or SSh or SFTP. <br>I just only try to use ghost blog :) <br>So I created a droplet as ubuntu machine <br>and I login <br>and I read this article about how to create ghost blog on ubuntu <br>https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-host-ghost-with-nginx-on-digitalocean <br> <br>And it says me to write ssh root@your-server-ip <br>so I cant write ‘@’ char to continue my tasks

I google it this problem and I understand that I should change keyboard layout <br>I find some command but it doesnt solve my problem <br>first I install <br>apt-get install x11-xkb-utils <br>and then type <br>setxkbmap tr <br>“can not open display default display” message shown <br>and then <br>sudo apt-get install console-data <br>and <br>loadkeys tr or loadkeys us <br>I couldnt find any ‘@’ character on my keyboard whatever I type.

Just out of curiosity, why use the console vs. connecting to your droplet via SSH or SFTP?
