    Macbook, keyboard layout issue : "<" <=> "@" and ">" <=> "#"

    Hi,

    I've Ubuntu 8.04.1 on Macbook 3,1 laptop.

    Before last upgrade two week ago, my keyboard layout worked perfecly. Since, I've this key switched :

    "<" <=> "@"

    and

    ">" <=> "#"

    Is someone have this issue ?

    This my xorg configuration :

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "MBP Keyboard"
        Driver      "kbd"
        Option      "CoreKeyboard"
        Option      "XkbRules" "xorg"
        Option      "XkbModel" "macintosh"
        Option      "XkbLayout" "fr"
        Option      "XkbOptions" "lv3:lwin_switch" 
    EndSection
    Thanks for your help,
    Stephane

    Go to SYSTEM > PREFERENCES > KEYBOARD > LAYOUTS TAB.
    And check if you have the correct keyboard layout set there!

    I've already looked this, my keyboard layout is MacBook/MacBook Pro (Intl).

    That is your keyboard type, what about the "layout" just below that.

    So is this not what your layout looks like? Did you not try the "macintosh" variant?

    No, there aren't ! This key are swaped :

    "<" <=> "@" and ">" <=> "#"

    There aren't before my last synaptic upgrade.

    The keyboard layout picture is good on my configuration but real keyboard mapping isn't ! I don't understand.

    If that is the case, then it is probably a bug, and I would file a report in launchpad.

    I think you can remap the keys manually, but I an not aware of how to do that. If you run 'xev' in a terminal, you can see the output information when you hit keys and use xmodmap to map them to the correct code. I am not familiar with how to do this though.
