Every time I go to type a degree symbol (°) in Linux, I seem to spend at least half an hour searching for the solution, so I thought I would write down here to remind me and help others. The easy way is to use Shift + Alt Gr + 0 which gives you °.

Alt Gr is that strange key just to the left of the space bar, that most people aren’t sure of what it for, well, here is one use 😉
