I can't find the right keyboard layout to use for my keyboard.

On the bottom left are these keys in this order:

ctrl, windows, alt, |, SPACE

That 4th key is what makes it weird. I selected "Generic 104 Keyboard," but when I press that key it's either < or >. It's a Zippy WK-725.

What keyboard layout should I use so that that key is correctly detected?

Try generic 101, and see. – Mitch Jun 29 '12 at 12:30
Thanks, it works when generic 101 is selected. And thanks to the editor. – z-buffer Jun 29 '12 at 22:23
