No, this is just the point, I was trying to add something to Xmodmap to get
the "@" key working, can you produce an "@" on your amiga keyboard?
When I check the keymap (Amiga non A1000, german) it is displayed correctly,
but still I can not produce this key, even with an xmodmap entry, even when
I put it on the "Q", like on the PC. Xmodmap is working in principle (I
mapped the 2 on the 3 by mistake...) but not for the "@". Where does X get
the information about the keyboard? Its not from the console tools, is it?
