Comment 1 Jaanus Kivistik 2002-12-13 08:09:49 EST
"<" seems to be AltGr + "," and ">" is AltGr + "." (which are wrong mappings on
a Estonian keyboard). Mapping of "pipe" is yet to be determined...

Comment 3 Jaanus Kivistik 2002-12-27 03:00:14 EST
Adding "XkbModel" "pc105" to XF86Config-4 fixed all symbols, exept "pipe". Adding 

key <LSGT>  { type[Group1]="FOUR_LEVEL",
                  [      less,    greater,          bar,     brokenbar] };

to pc/ee symbols file fixed  "pipe" also, but I think there must be a cleaner
solution (maybe from a toplevel symbols file?)

this is also a problem for the swedish (se) keyboard. The suggseted solution
above works for me.
Comment 5 Daniel Resare 2003-01-20 18:05:50 EST
At least for the swedish keybaord, this is fixed in XFree86-
Comment 6 Mike A. Harris 2003-01-20 21:10:51 EST
Is this working for estonian in the XFree86- release
or later now?  If not, then please let me know ASAP.
Comment 7 Jaanus Kivistik 2003-01-21 02:39:56 EST
