Ah, I was thinking French, too. (The original post was about a French
keyboard.) Unfortunately, you'll have to try some things, as I don't have an
immediate solution for you (or a Finnish keyboard!)
So first, copy your keyboard InputDevice section, and paste a copy at the
first line of your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4. That way, you can still use debconf
to manage the rest of your XF86Config-4, but have your keyboard overrides.
Then, I have a couple of ideas for you to try. You'll have to restart X after
each of these changes and see if it works.
First, try deleting the XkbModel "macintosh" line. From the
/etc/X11/xkb/keymap/macintosh file, only us keyboards are defined. Restart
and see if that works.
Otherwise, try deleting the XkbLayout line and adding a line:
Let us know if either of these help.
