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.

Which?


Actually, I'm just missing pipe (for exactly that reason).

The "¦" symbol is apparently called "broken bar" and happens to be the what my "scandinavian" USB- keyboard gives when the physical key between the <z> and the <left shift> key is pressed together with <alt gr>+<shift>. I have never used it before and I don't think it has a function in any language, see wikipedia:

I have not yet figured out how to make the Teres keyboard do the pipe.
