key for ">, <" and "#" not working
I own a Acer TravelMate 220 with SuSE 9.0 (KDE 3.1.4) installed.
From the beginning on, the key for ">, <" (left of the space bar) and the key for "#" (left of the enter key) had never been working. I was able to ignore this, but since I started programming I start missing those keys and need to solve this issue urgently (if possible).
I have tried almost every combination of keybord layout in KDE controll center but none of them worked.
I find it very strange, that showkey (on a textconsole) never responded a keycode of those 2 keys (but of all others) . Therefore I wonder, if they are scanned at all by the system....
How can I investigate this further??
Thanks for any help
Edit XF86config or xorg.conf, and add/change this line:
Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
unfortunately that did not work.
Instead of xorg.conf I found /etc/X11/XF86conf and I edited the line as suggested.
I also have /etc/sysconfig/keyboard, where I find this line:
But still, no characters when I hit those keys nor a keycode when I check it with showkey.
Any idea what could make my system to recognize the missing keys?
