I have an ibook of the newer generation with an 800MHz processor and an
ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 graphics card. I have installed the Ben Kernel
2.40 and XFree86 v.4.2 plus the patched drivers from Michael Dänzer. The
X sytem works fine. My problem now is that I have a swiss-german
keyboard. In the XF86Config-4 config file I have the following line for
the keyboard layout:
Option "XkbLayout" "de_CH"
However, certain keys did not work. So I started to find out the
keycodes using xev, and to write an .Xmodmap file to map those keys.
Again, the solution only worked halfway through. Some keys could be
mapped but not others. Interestingely I cannot map any key with
adiaeresis, udiaeresis, odiaeresis etc. whereas I can map the same keys
with anything else.
Does anyone have any idea what is going on?
Thanks for your help
