Thanks, I've read the /var/lib/dpkg/info/xserver-xfree86.templates file.
My "<>|" key is working right now =)

It works with this two XKbModel's, but the last one is the right one (I
dont have any Logo-keys)

Option          "XkbModel"      "pc106"
Option          "XkbModel"      "pc103"

Thanks all,
