I am running Ubuntu 8.10 with kubuntu-desktop also installed. I am having problems with getting al the keys to work on my iBook G4 (PPC). It has a Belgian (is the same as the French iBook layouts I think) keyboard layout. This layout is different from a regular (non ibook) belgian or french layout.
Keys that are not working: {,},[,],|,... These keys are very important to me.

I tried the GUI methods from Gnome and KDE, trying several combinations of layouts and models. I had the same problem before and then I used the fr_new keymap. The same one is available in /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/macintosh_vndr/fr. I configured X to use this in xorg.conf, but this doesn't seem to work anymore.

Does anyone know how to get those symbols working? I am out of ideas.
