Re: keymaps

Most of these files should already be in /usr/share/keymaps/i386 as part of the console-data package. It's odd that they're in i386, but it's because the ppc kernel is now using the "default" linux keycodes (and we all know that "default linux" = i386 :)

The mac-usb-qwertz-layout is identical to qwertz-layout. (It's just the alphabet keys, after all.)

It and mac-linux-keys-bare.inc are in /usr/share/keymaps/i386/include (and they're gz compressed).

mac-usb-euro.kmap is in /usr/share/keymaps/i386/qwerty, but it should be deleted. Use /usr/share/keymaps/i386/include/euro.inc.gz instead. There's lots of these problems with the mac-usb-* keymaps.

Then again, there's /usr/share/keymaps/i386/qwertz/fr_CH-latin1.kmap.gz, which should be the same as for Swiss German (and Swiss Italian, too, I think.) These should probably all be symbolic links to each other. The French here in Switzerland type french with a German keyboard.

Let me know if any of these work for you. I am interested in fixing these keymaps over time. Especially check that you can switch from the Linux console to X by using <ctrl>-<option>-<F7> and <ctrl>-<option>-<F1> as that was a problem for Woody and US keymaps.

Also, these fixes are only in the console, not in X.
Very interesting. But how do you configure the keyboard? I do kbdconfig and then I choose 'arch list' 'German' 'latin 1'.

But this gives me the @ on the 2 and not on the G as it is on my keyboard of my Tibook. Also | is on 1 and the ~ is on ^ and not on n as ist used to be.

Thanks for your time and help.

Well yes, this is indeed a very interesting question: I was (and still
am) looking for a the Swiss-German Keyboard for about two days for my
Tibook but did not find anything so far. At the moment I am using the
qwertz with PC-Layout, so I get the | @ ~ etc. signs.

Have you tried 'kbdconfig' as root. That helped me.

Let me know what you hear.
