Okey, first of all, if this is the same problem I had when I installed
Debian, about a year ago, it's not the keymaps...
My problem was that I could display åäö properly, but couldn't type them
though. Only got beeps in the speaker...
IF this is the case, try reading something like /usr/doc/kbd/*FAQ*...
The fix is to add a ~/.inputrc with a couple of options, also
making sure you escape 8bit characters to the shell by adding a line
to your ~/.bashrc
bln@irg<~>$ grep stty .bashrc
stty cs8 -istrip -parenb
bln@irg<~>$ cat .inputrc
set meta-flag on
set convert-meta off
set output-meta on
Okey, this _should_ do the trick, all asuming that you have
the same problem I had...
