Keyboard problem

Postby jcezanna56 » 1. Jul 2007, 21:59

I have a problem with my AZERTY keyboard (French) on my macbook pro.
On a such keyboard some characters are composed like
Alt+UP+L to get | (bar) or Alt+n to get asciitilde (~) or Alt+$ to get €.

Any help would be appreciated.

I forgot to precize that :
- In fcat there is no Alt combinations that works
- the key @# under the Esc key is interveted with the <> (over the Ctrl and Alt key)

i found something that works for me: ctrl + alt

you mustn't try to use the Apple-Combinations for your Windows/Linux OS
instead you have to use the native combinations

as I posted here:

Ctrl + Alt + Q -> @
Ctrl + Alt + ß -> \ (on german keyboards ß is the key next to 0 [zero])
Ctrl + Alt + '+' -> ~

at least that's how it works on my german keyboard layout
