Re: dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration (Swedish with "|" and "¦"?)

And it works! Now I am just missing "|" and "¦".

With US Keyboards, I see either of those characters, right of the "p" key.  I was not aware that there were two, distinct characters. 

One of them ("|" on my current keyboard) is used as a "Pipe" symbol, for when I "pipe" the results of one command into another.


I have tried "Generic 105-key PC (intl.)" and "Generic 102-key PC
(intl.)" in the menue following the command 'dpkg-reconfigure
keyboard-configuration' (see above), but there is no difference between
105 and 102 wrt what the Teres keyboard produce on screen (see below).

I have also tried with an USB keyboard which has one extra key between
<left shift> and <z>. That extra key delivers "|") and "¦" with both
"Generic 105-key PC (intl.)" and "Generic 102-key PC (intl.)" (and Swedish).

I can of course use the USB keyboard with my laptop, but it would be
more convenient if I could get the Teres keyboard to do "|" and "¦".

So, does anyone know how to make the Teres keyboard not only output
Swedish letters, but also "|" and  "¦"?

Maybe there is a "keyboard model" I can choose that is a better fit than
"Generic 105-key PC (intl.)" and"Generic 102-key PC (intl.)"?
