Bug Description

Binary package hint: onboard
Latest Package Tested: onboard 0.94.0-0ubuntu2b1

In Japanese keyboard layout, there is a key "<" between "Z" and left shift key.

The key, I guess, is the alternative of the one between "^" and backspace.

But the key does not behave properly.

How to reproduce:
 1. set the layout Japan-Japan in gnome-keyboard-properties.
 2. launch onboard.

Expected result:
 the key should be the one which generates backslash keycode, but which is showed as Yen sign "¥" (U+00A5) on keytop.
 When shift is pressed, the key should be bar key "|".

Actual result:
 the key is "<" key. ">" is when shift is pressed. bar "|" when AltGr is pressed.

Japanese layout does not have AltGr key in general.
But actually in onBoard, the key needs AltGr.
After this change made, AltGr can be safely converted to right Alt key.

There have been many changes in Ubuntu since that time you reported the bug and your problem may have been fixed with some of the updates. It would help us a lot if you could test a current Ubuntu Ubuntu10.10. The issue that you reported is one that should be reproducible with the live environment of the Desktop CD.
