Bug Description

I use a spanish keyboard and the typical Spanish-Spain keyboard layout.

When I hit the "less-than" key (<), I get the character: \
And when I hit the "greater-than" key (>), I get: |

I don't know is this happens while using other keyboard layouts, because I don't have any keyboard with any other layout.

Thanks for reading.

miguelsanfer: I think your problem is just a consequence this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint/+bug/490092

I had the same problem: Instead of the Spanish keyboard layout you got an Irish one. Go to Preferences -> Keyboard, install the Spanish layout and then remove the default layout.

Thanks Borja. You were right.

Before this, I had selected the spanish keyboard layout as default, but I had not removed the other keyboard layouts from the list. Now I have, and my problem is fixed.
