And it works! Now I am just missing "|" and "¦".
Nothing specific to Teres-I laptop about that.

How do you know?

There are no signs on the box telling me that the Teres laptop keyboard is one or the other of the [keyboards listed] by dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration and the link to the hardware source don't say either:


Problem is that you want a pipe key "|" reachable

Yes, that is the problem!

on a 102-key keyboard

The Teres laptop keyboard has 80 physical keys. Why do you call it a "102-key keyboard"?

with a swedish layout.

Swedish layout is this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QWERTY#Swedish

Notice how "<" and ">" (on a 105-key US layout is right of "M", shifted)
is left of "Z" on a key which is missing on 102-char keyboards.

Myscandinavian USB keyboard has 105 physical keys, but since the Teres laptop keyboard has 80 physical keys I cannot really notice "a key which is missing on 102-char keyboards".

Please note that both myUSB keyboard and the Teres keyboard delivers identical output with the two dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration options I have tried "Generic 105-key PC (intl.)" and "Generic 102-key PC (intl.)".

Thanks for feedback!
