It is difficult work with the Terminal if you can't type the tilde. Does anybody know how to do this using a Spanish keyboard?

  • I remember keeping a text file around so I could copy paste the tilde on old unix workstations. Was a real hassle and luckily OS X has better support. – bmike Dec 14 '15 at 20:18

Using a Spanish keyboard and Spanish keybindings the tilde is altñ. Using English keybindings (System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Input Sources) and a Spanish keyboard it's still altn. If you immediately enter a / afterwards, you don't need an extra space.

Note: On some keyboards the two alt keys are different. To get the tilde, you may have to use the alt gr key located to the right of the spacebar.
