Description udippel 1999-11-12 17:26:29 UTC
sorry if this is an Xwindows or gnome problem:
keyboard used, installed and configured as swiss-german behaves reasonable
under bash (except of special characters): shift'1'='+', qwertz, etc.
When starting Xwindows (gnome) it behaves like US-keyboard: qwerty, etc.
In Linuxconf/Features it shows as 'sg' nevertheless. Even loading the
mapping explicitely brings no change (load is acknowledged :.. qwertz/sg
What to do?

You need to change your X keyboard configuration - edit your
/etc/X11/XF86Config file.
