I am having a problem with my Ubuntu 8.04 installation with respect to keys doing strange things.
For example / turns into é and ? turns into É
If I go into the keyboard settings, and change the layout between any of the Generic 101,102,104,105 key layouts the keyboard works fine.
I'm using a plain old Microsoft Basic Keyboard 1.0A plugged into a PS2 port.
After I restart it shows the same keyboard layout, but the mapping goes all weird. Once I select another layout it works fine.
I'm using a standard USA layout as well.
Any help with this problem is greatly appreciated!
