Description of problem:
Using an Estonian keyboard layout, when I press <AltGr>+"<" I get "<".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In X, open a terminal or gedit.
2. Press <AltGr> + "<".
Actual Results: <
Expected Results: | (I had to use the character map to get this.)
On my Estonian keyboard, the <, >, | key is between the left shift key and Z.
From a virtual console, the showkey command shows a scan code of 86.
The keyboard for the virtual consoles works correctly and also in the X of Red
This is probably related to bug 79404, but it doesn't seem to exactly match what
Jaanus is describing. I can confirm that < and > appear when you press <AltGr>
and ; and :, respectively, and this may not be correct. But it's more important
that we be able to get a pipe character out of this keyboard.
