Fedora :: Keyboard Layout - What Combination To Get: > (symbol)


I have this (Norwegian) keyboard layout on a HP Mini 1000 (came with US keyboard). But I can't seem to find the combination to get the ">" (or "<" for that matter) symbol/char. Anyone out there know the combination so I can finally use my netbook for other things than just simple browsing?

Software :: Get Euro Symbol Working In Keyboard Layout?
Does anyone know how to get Euro symbol working. I have tried this in Debian, Slackware and Centos. Normally on windows I get the symbol using "control-alt and 4". I have made sure my regional settings are correct in Linux, but still nothing..

Ubuntu :: Adding Spanish Language Keyboard Layout Disables Alt_R On USA Layout?
Running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx, GNOME 2.3Keyboard Preferences utilityAdding any Spanish language keyboard layout makes my Alt_R not work in ANY layout! I see that it changes Alt_R to "Iso_L..." for all/both layouts, including USA layout. When I click "Reset to Defaults" it's fine again, USA layout shows Alt_R again. I've tried all the variants of the Latin American layout and the Spain layout and they all do the same thing.What is "ISO_L..." and what's going on?i DESPERATELY need my Alt_R to work!

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard Layout Constantly Resets To Another Layout In OSUSE 11.3?
I have installed opensuse 11.3 a couple of weeks ago in 2 computers and both suffer of the same problem.In my asus laptop, i have a german keyboard. It is correctly recogniced as german keyboard by ev-dev, i guess. (ev-dev managed). But i need to write some spanisch symbols too, like accents (ᠩ ? 񬠷hich in a normal linux, they do work. For some reason, after rebooting, or after some time of having it running, the keyboard layout resets to an invalid setup, here accents get not over the letter (?a ?e ?i ?o ?u), so i have to select my layout again in the gnome control center.

With my other computermore or less the same.Its a desktop PC with an spanisch keyboard. But i thinck i picked German keyboard during installation and now it starts always with german with some sort of 5 secs delay when setting it. I have to pick spanisch and i always delete the german layout, but after some time having it running, it resets to the previusly deleted german layout.

Fedora :: Wrong Keyboard Layout At Login (KDM)
I use a Dvorak keyboard. I recently installed F13, and the layout is correct in the console an after logging in, but at the login screen, it goes to QWERTY. I've tried all of the settings in the GUI configurators; all of those are set right. There is no xorg.conf; so, I can't change it that way.

Fedora :: Keyboard Layout Back To USA After Login
This problem has been discussed a couple of times here and there and there are numerous solutions as well as unsolved stories. The topic says it all I think. I use ca(fr) layout, and in the gnome keyboard configuration (system, preferences, keyboard) I only leave Canada. When I log out and go back in, the layout changes to USA and in the configuration tool, theres canada AND usa. I have to delete USA every time. The file /etc/sysconfig/keyboard is already set to ca(fr) and doesn't change

I tried to delete:
rm -f /var/cache/gdm/your-username/.dmrc
rm -f ~/.dmrc

but I either did miss something or it didn't work. The only thing I observed is that if I set the keyboard layout to Ca(fr) at the login screen (which is always set back to USA), the layout stays to ca(fr) in my session. This problem did not occur on Fedora 11 and it began on 12 on my laptop as well as on my girlfriend's.

I've read somewhere and I forgot where, that it is a known bug in Gnome and that it is fixed in a later version. I applied all available updates and system/about this computer says I have Gnome 2.28.0 and if I recall, this bug is supposedly fixed in 2.28.4 but I may be wrong on the version number. This is very annoying as we try to turn our computers off when we don't use them but this reset every login kind of forces us to our previous bad habits.

Fedora :: Make A Personalized Keyboard Layout ?
My problem is that I use a awful lot of characters. I do math which means I want to be able to type Greek letters and mathematical symbols, and I also want to be able to type Polish and Russian characters. I figure for Cyrillic I should just make a separate layout since I wouldn't want to type with one hand on some special key all the time anyway. What I would like to do would be to use the right alt for Polish and math symbols (there are enough keys to go around) and use a different shortcut for Greek letters, preferably not involving switching layouts.

I know only a very small bit about how xkb works (I at least know where the layout files are, what each key is called, and how to do trivial manipulations, but that's it) and none of the tutorials i could find were very informative about what I need to know.

One stupid, hopefully easy problem is that I do not know how to input math characters because I do not know their names (for characters like integral, less than or equal to, direct sum, etc) or if/how I can put in Unicode ids or something of that nature.

The other thing is that I don't know how to set up a separate key combination (say right-alt - backslash) to use Greek letters.

Ubuntu :: Add New Keyboard Key Combination For A Function Like Alt + F4?
I would like do add a new keyboard key combination for a function like Alt + F4.
for example shift + control + s.
Up to now, i was successful with exchanging the function Alt + F4.
But I don't like to exchange, because I need Alt + f4 and shift + control + s for the function close window at the same time.

So how can I add a new keyboard combination without to exchange?

Fedora :: Incorrect Keyboard Layout ( No Pipe Character )?
I'm new to linux, been using fedora 12 for about a week. I just noticed a problem with my keyboard layout. When i press the key with the backslash and pipe character, i get < for backslash and > for the pipe character. I have tried the following to fix the problem:

1.$ gnome-keyboard-properties then selected the proper keyboard model (Asus Laptop) tried adding different keyboard layouts and setting them as default nothing i did there made any difference.I am currently using USA, i have tried Canada English, USA international, and more I noticed that even when i change it to something like Afganistan, there is no noticable different when i type in the test area. I notice that there are keyboard layouts that have < and > where the backslash and pipe character should be, but the picture for USA shows the pipe and backslash where they should be.

Fedora :: Fc11 NX Keyboard Layout Broken - Unresponsive
* When connecting to a host using NX (nomachine), the keyboard layout is wrong, Down arrow is enter, delete is print screen making it difficult to work.

* Gnome keyboard interface appears to do nothing when options are changed, works in fc10.

* Trying to changed the keyboard options originally crashed the nx connection, untill I murdered bug buddy who was the culprit in that issue.

In fc10 you could change options and see a result, not so in fc11, why ?

Fedora Installation :: Notebook HP Pavilion DV8000 - Keyboard Layout?
I used to have F9 on my HP pavilion dv8000. I have been trying to install F10 (and even CentOS 5.3) on it and, during the installation process, when I choose the keyboard layout (english) it doesn't go on. Weird because I am using the same disk I successfully used to install F10 on my desktop. What could it be? The same problem happens when I make the installation process in text mode...
