Can anyone help me finding the right keyboard map for an IBM thinkpad A22m with the UK keyboard. At the moment the single quotes, double quotes and tilda does not show on the screen on the first keypress only on the second, however I dont believe it is mapping to ascii dec 39,34,126 respectively as php-cli is complaining. I have chosen the uk keyboard and thinkpad keyboard in the mouse/keyboard wizard keyboard model

Strange reaction for single and double quote. Should display right away I think.
But for the tilde, this is normal as a tilde is put on top of another character and thus the keyboard input waits for a second character to be pushed.
This latter is called dead-key support.

Hi thankyou for your reply. By using geany and hd it ends up that the quote mapped to ascii hex B4 and double quote A8. Do you know how I can reset them back to the proper values

In the ISO8859-1 character set A8 is umlaut or diaeresis and B4 acute.
You have a UK keyboard?
What is the keyboard language set in xorg.conf?

i made a google search for "ISO8859-1 character set" and i checked many types map.

I think that set is not like mine: i have the fwslash "/" above seven, on the maps thre's always a singlequote " ' " above 7; more: the " >< " type is for me just before Z, between Z and left shift.
you see, many differences

i did'nt know there are so many many many thinghs behind the pc build.
if i could id' post a pic of my kb.

anyway in meanwhile i search on internet.

thnx

In answer to the question how is the keyboard defined in xorg.conf:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "thinkpad"
Option "XkbLayout" "gb" #xkeymap0
Option "XkbVariant" "intl"
EndSection

gmtosh, some differences with mine.
I did choose the normal kb model pc102.
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
   Identifier  "Keyboard0"
   Driver      "kbd"
   Option      "XkbRules" "xorg"
   Option      "XkbModel" "pc102"
   Option      "XkbLayout" "be" #xkeymap0
EndSection
And for sure, mine is Belgian, without intl.

Hi Beem
That was a really useful post. I took away the keyboard variant intl with dead keys and replaced the thinkpad model with PC102 and the quote, doublequote and tilde work fine first press - Thankyou

I drank all the liquid. Wink
Well, normally the OP (original Poster) is master of his thread.
If you feel the solution doesn't apply to you, then yes open another thread.
Even having a tittle which seems to be about a same problem, due to machine differences, it could be another problem.
