I'm using Slackware 10.1 with Xorg with a small "shorty/laptop" style keyboard which has 89 keys - no numberpad to the right.
Most of the keys work, except the alternative characters, such as @ and and so on - that is, <Alt Gr>+<key>. even <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<key> doesn't work.

With xorg.conf (and xf86config) the smallest keyboard seems to be 101 keys.

Any ideas?

Have a look at man pages for keymaps and xmodmap - I think it may be the stuff you want.

The @ and sound like a country/language problem - the UK and US keyboards are different in layout for these.

Thanks, I will do - I did look for the man pages, but wasn't sure which ones.

I am using a Finnish/Swedish keyboard, for which a normal sized keyboard is a 105 key keyboard ("4" in xorgconf setup) and fi/latin1 as the map.

I just replaced "101" with "105" in the keyboard section of XF86Conf & it now works.
