Keyboard layout problem

Asked by Juha Vuorinen on 2013-02-21

Hello.
Since updating ubuntu 12.10 for the first time, i have had a problem. Keyboard layout is messed up. Letters seem to be in their places but for example when i try to make an - with the key next to the right shift i get an / and when i press right shift and 0 i get an ) instead of the calculate result mark or whatever it is. In system settings under keyboard layout everything seems legit. But in everywhere else........... I also tried to change the keyboard input method system under language support but nothing changed..

The language of the keyboard IS supposed to be finnish by the way..
