Is that in console or X?

And which others don't do what
they're supposed to?


Cheers,

that is in X, but I'm not sure how it's in console
well, for instance, when i press "alt gr + 6" I get this:

uhm.. Well. That was all...

What does the keyboard device section
in your XF86Config look like? Is your
locale set properly?

Cheers,

well, there are somehow to:

Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Keyboard1"
Driver "Keyboard"

EndSection

and later in the file

Identifier "Keyboard"

Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
Driver "keyboard"
EndSection

Shouldn't "us" say "se" in your case? :)

Maybe you've been looking at the wrong file,
then? If it (the file) says us, but you actually
have se going, something must be wrong ;)

well... I use gnome, and there is a function for changing language built in... But I've not sure how it works in other window managers... I have openbox3 installed, but I couldn't figure out how to get it in to the gdm list..
