Ok, hi all!

I know taht I'm not the first (and not the last) to have this problem but on my iBook, I can't use a correct keyboard map. I use now the fr_CH default keymap, but I can't type spécial chars like { [ og simply @ or # (I'm posting this message with a PC ;-)

I'm using Xorg (GRP 2004.3 version, I don't remember the exact version number).

If anyone can help me to find or configure a correct Swiss French keymap for this machine....

Thanks all

That way, I have the the same German keyboard configuration as under OSX:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "keyboard"
Option "xkbrules" "xorg"
option "xkbmodel" "ibook"
option "xkblayout" "de"
EndSection Section

For special symbols, I have to use the button between the second Apple-key and the left cursor key.
For the French Swiss keyboard something like ' Option "xkblayout" "fr_CH" ' might be the appopriate choice.
If you wanna do some exploring of your own, you might wanna check your /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/ directory.
Good luck!



Good luck.

Maintenant, your solution work fine :-)

The chars mapping is a little strange but I'll remember in a few day!

Thanks thanks thanks thanks!
