Hello everybody, I am using the original usb keyboard of my iMac rev.B, that is similar to the correspondent American one, except for the order of the letters (first ones are qzerty and not qwerty) and the presence of accented vocals. In my /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 I have the following lines to use it:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "keyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "macintosh"
Option "XkbLayout" "it"
Option "XkbGeometry" "macintosh"

It works fine except that I couldn't get the characters that I usually have on Mac Os X using the modifier buttons. As an example, the symbols file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/macintosh/it, that is the one that I load with the lines above of XF86Config-4, says:

key <AE04> { [ parenleft, 4 ], [ braceleft, bracketleft ] };

That means that pressing the correspondent button I get (, pressing shift+it I get 4, and pressing modifier+shift+it I should get { and instead in that case pressing as modifier alt I get again (, pressing as modifier command I get " , and the same happens for different buttons. So I am wondering how it is possible to obviate to this problem, if XF86Config has to be modified, or if there is something different to do to have all the symbols that I need (for example bar, backslash, ...) from my keyboard.
