No tilde (~) in terminal



I have a swedish keyboard and a problem: in the terminal it is not possible to write a tilde (~). The tilde is very useful since it represents the home directory (cd ~/Documents means go to the documents dir in my home dir, saves a lot of typing).

Does this apply to all keyboards or just international?

The tilde is alt-umlaut (¨) on a swedish keyboard (the location is the rightmost on the qwerty-row, just next to the return).
