suse 8.1, keyboard ( key <> | ) not working


Hello,

Having problem with the key (< > | ) on suse 8.1.
nothing happens when pressed, I use a Swedish Keyboard,
Swedish layout, tried other layouts but the trouble remains.
Can't write any scripts without that key .....

iner, try setting your keyboard layout as either "Finnish" or "Swedish, type: Generic 105-key (intl)PC". You can easily change those options by running sax2 at the terminal and going into Input Devices >> Keyboard.

Good luck!

LOL. Yeah, I thought it was kinda weird that you did the signs too, yet was not sure how to do them. I hope you get it to work mate!
