unfortunately i am not able to get Tilde character work properly on Debian OS. I am using macbook pro retina 2015 and tried to key the keyboard layout in the settings to any available English option but still i get >or< instead of Tilde and seems nothing changed after choosing different layouts.

I've tried to ask in different communities, but nobody could help me. Also, i've read the debian/macbook page but i couldn't figure it out.

Please help me to fix this as i am choosing Debian as my primary OS.

OK, according to https://wiki.debian.org/Keyboard, you should install keyboard-configuration and follow the on-screen prompts. You probably want to choose either "macbook78" or "macbook79" (the International variant - the number probably indicates the number of keys on your keyboard) as the keyboard MODEL.

Secondly, are you saying that pressing the tilde key produces the string ">or<" or the string "or"? Either way, that's an odd thing to produce. I wonder if you have some sort of macro or keyboard shortcut set up? In what sort of environment does this happen (e.g. Linux Terminal, Gnome, KDE etc?)

Thanks a lot.

For more information, please reread.
