I am using a Gentoo system with KEYMAP=de-latin1-nodeadkeys in the console.
The pipe key (in Germany in the left of "y") is not working under X but in a
console it's working fine.
But every other key makes no problem [@ (at), € (euro) and umlauts].
My xorg.conf lines:
Option "XkbRules" "xorg" (I tried xfree86)
Option "XkbModel" "pc102" (I tried pc101, 104 and 105)
Option "XkbLayout" "de"
I have the same problem with these lines in xorg.conf:
Option "AutoRepeat" "500 5"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "is"
but the problem only occures in KDE (using version 3.2.0) and selecting
Icelandic keyboard layout in Kxkb.
here to explain a bit:
Running xterm in fluxbox: the <>| key works.
Running xterm in KDE with US layout in Kxkb: the <>| key works.
Running xterm in KDE with Icelandic/German/Swedish layout in Kxkb: the <>| key
I'm not sure if this is KDE or Xorg bug, but everything worked fine before in
I found out how to solve the problem, by using 102 key layout instead of a 104 one:
$ setxkbmap -model pc102 -layout is -variant basic
Still.. the pipe key worked before using the "-model pc104" settings with
setxkbmap in XFree86 4.3.0. Not sure if this is a bug or a layout fix :)
I checked with the latest xkeyboard-config - it works OK for Icelanding layout,
using pc104. If it is not - feel free to reopen (be sure you took the latest
