characters (like 'a', '<' etc on to the ?, ? keys, everything works fine.
For the console, add this to /etc/rc.conf:
For X11, use this in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "de"
No need to work with screen mappings for the basic stuff.
may be, but at least I would like to use my keyboard the right way... is this basic?
