Hello,
I have unsuccessfully searched for a solution to this problem and I am sorry if this is a repost.

Question one:
The core problem is that both the third level (alt gr+) "<" and "7" are mapped to pipe. Leading to the annoying situation where I can not type the "{" character.

Question two:
I also wonder if it is some how possible to make the keyboard input work more or less exactly as it does in os x, alt+8 -> {, shitf+alt+8 -> [, cmd+left -> home etc. I have no trouble using the normal Ubuntu input style in most cases but since I use this particular computer mostly for os x something in my brain just will not stop trying to use the os x mapping style.

Right now I have a pretty clean (and otherwise working) installation of Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit where the keyboard settings are "Sweden Macintosh" with the model set to "MacBook/MacBook pro (intl)". I have fiddled around with the more advanced keyboard options as well but nothing seems to work.

Thanks in advance for any help!
