Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 523565
Dell Mini 9, UK keyboard, 5 symbol keys not working
Last modified: 2010-05-10 19:23:36 EDT
Description of problem:
Fedora 11, updates applied, 5 separate keys don't work. I'll attach a picture showing the keyboard, and the default settings within the gnome keyboard config applet.
I've tried switching the keyboard model to all of the available Dell models, all of the generic models, etc -- no joy.
It's really hard to use the shell without pipe, to write shell scripts without hash, and to program without brackets :-/
Bizarrely, Google doesn't seem to know about anyone else complaining about the problem.
