ALT GR key doesn't work?


Hello!

My ALT GR key doesn't work in slackware 9.0 and it is starting to getting pretty anoying now. For example if i hold down the ALT GR key and presses the "at-sign" then nothing happens. So does anyone now any solution for this problem?

I would be very very happy if I got it to work!

thx!

Sounds like a German keyboard ...

Now, in which environment, X or Console,
does it not work? What type of keyboard did
you chose?

Cheers,
Tink

Layout: se_SE
The alt gr key is the one to the right of the spacebar key. But it really doesn't matter because my "regular" alt key doesn't either work.

My conf...

Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
Option "XkbLayout" "se_SE"
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:lalt_toggle,lv3:switch,ctrl:ctrl_aa,grp_led:scroll,caps:internal"

Settings look OK to me...

Next question is: do you actually
have a MS natural keyboard?


Cheers,
Tink
