keyboard problem


I have absolutly no idea how to fix this i have reconfigure my xorg config files many times. The problem is on a UK keyboard on the keythat has @ on there is also another key(cant think of what it is called) but it would be used like this boy's carrot's. The thing is though it does not show this keyjust as you can see it shows a virtial dot it is not on the accent as it should be.

I have a uk keyboard with the two windows keys between trl and alt on both sides. I have set the keyboard layou to uk in the kde control centre. I am at a loss how to sort this out.

Anyone have any idea, or could someone from the uk running debian possably post there xorg configuration file.

TThanks in advance

Michael.

My /etc/X11/xorg.conf has the following section
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier	"Generic Keyboard"
	Driver		"kbd"
	Option		"CoreKeyboard"
	Option		"XkbRules"	"xorg"
	Option		"XkbModel"	"pc105"
	Option		"XkbLayout"	"gb"
EndSection
it is the same for most other distros that I have tried, works for me

ps 'uk' is normally Ukranian
