My MacBook Pro (5,3) works almost completely OOTB (with restricted video and WiFi drivers), but I am experiencing some keyboard weirdness.

Specifically to get either (` and ~) or (´ and ¨) I have to press the key twice. Only these two keys behave this way - every other key mapping works.

Keyboard settings are:

  • Model: Apple Laptop (due to #538474)
  • Layout: United Kingdom Macintosh (International)

  • I´ve since discovered that the reason those keys require double presses is that they can be used to add accents to other characters (e.g. áèú). – schwuk May 11 '11 at 7:52

xmodmap can be used to remap them.
