I've got some problems setting up my keyboard on my laptop. I just installed Fedora Core 5, installed some additional developer tools like compilers and libraries and did the sofware updates. Everything went ok, but i still got problems with my keyboard, especially with the special characters. E.g. I'm not able to type an '@'-sign or a '~'-sign.
My laptop is a Comaq Armada M300 with a swiss german keyboard-layout. My xorg.conf file has the following section:
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "de"
I'm asking myself if i it is possible to use "de-ch" instead of "de" at the XkbLayout parameter...
I tried to change the keyboard model, too. I did this by choosing System - Settings - Keyboard from the menu and then choosing "laptop/notebook Compaq (eg. Armada) Laptop Keyboard" from the list provided. But it didn't help...
I'm sorry, I'm really new to linux and I can't help myself. Can anyone give me some advice? Thank you very much!
