My forward slash doesn't work on Ubuntu. (Everything works fine when I connect the keyboard to my old XP laptop.)
Here's a photo of the keyboard on my new Xubuntu 12.04 box:
Please ignore the Cyrillic letters. The keyboard is a logitech k120. It's a British layout (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:KB_United_Kingdom.svg), but I set it to English US so that the double quote -- " -- is in the usual place.
Everything works fine except for the forward slash. They key labelled with the forward slash which you can see in the photo gives the characters "<" or with the shift key ">".
Those characters already exist in their usualy places above the comma and period and work fine.
Can anyone recommend how I might troubleshoot / work around? It's super annoying to have to cut and paste forward slashes.
