So here's the problem:
I've got a Windows 7 machine and a Gentoo 10.1 box set up with Synergy keyboard and mouse sharing configured.
The Windows 7 keyboard and mouse is shared with the Linux box so I can control the Linux box from windows.
I've set the keyboard language on both machines to be English (UK) with a Generic 105 key layout.
However, when I try and type "@" which is [Shift + '] on my keyboard, I get a "?" on the screen in Linux and the caps lock key flashes for a second on the Linux keyboard.
If I change the layouts to be "default" instead of "Extended UK" I get my @ symbol working but I don't get the < > keys working - they are replaced with « » and I still get a caps lock flash for the @.
I've tried so many different things to get this to work and nothing
I'm using evdev for the keyboard driver and the keyboard I have connected to the Linux box is a really cheap 85 key keyboard (i.e. no numpad etc)
Does anyone have any ideas on this?
