    Mac alu keyboard layout

    Is there a way to get Ubuntu to recognize the complete layout of my mac alu keyboard (wired) ?
    As I live in Belgium, I have an AZERTY-layout. The '@' is located at the top left, right beneath the escape key. Took me five minutes to find out how to type it (in my case it's ALT-£) so it's a bit of a pain.

    Does anyone know how to do it ?

    You need to start with the closest layout you can find to your own keyboard (probably a basic PC Belgian layout) then use xmodmap to modify the keys you need.

    This is my own for a UK mac keyboard

    Code:
    keycode 94=grave asciitilde grave asciitilde dead_grave dead_horn
    keycode 49=section plusminus section plusminus section plusminus
    save this as .Xmodmap (note upper case X) in your home directory, then log out and back in.

    You will need to google the correct keys for your layout but this is the right way to start.
