Synergy/Synergy+ - "@" key problem

Hi guys,

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?

Have you tried running the synergy server on the linux box and the client on your win box? I've been running that way for over a year with no issues...
