after my install on Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat on my iBook, I have noticed that used keyboard layout is a PC one, and not Mac one. Let me explain it more clearly :
As an example, Mac keyboard defines a physical key for the
- (which sup character is
_). When pressing this key, the character appearing on screen is
=, as this key is binded using a Windows/Linux physical keyboard. To terminate with that example, for displaying the
- character, I have to press the key displaying the 6 number (which on Mac should normally print
If I take a look at my configuration, the keyboard properties says (in its layout pane)
- language "other french"
- keyboard type "laptop mac"
What do I have to change to obtain the same key on screen than the one I have on keyboard ?
UPDATE It's an iBook G4 1.33 GHz (M9846LL/A: (Retail $999) 1.33 GHz; 12 in display; 40 GB hard disk; slot-load combo drive (DVD-ROM/CD-RW) - thanks, wikipedia) with a french localized keyboard.
