Bug Description

Full details here:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/148083/why-the-enter-key-in-a-mac-keyboard-is-mapped-to-level/149187

I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04

Trying to use a Mac keyboard (full-size recent UK aluminium model) - the keypad-enter key is mapped to 'Level' instead of 'KP_Enter'.

There is no need to map it to 'Level' since it seems the right-hand 'Alt' key is already mapped to that (which seems correct). The Enter key should work as an Enter key though!

Thanks, I don't know what xorg is or what package the keyboard layout definitions belong to... but as you can see I have run the apport command and it's appended a bunch of no doubt fascinating technical detail about my pc to this bug report, hope that helps!

I don't think it's a duplicate.

Except for the fact that both bugs involve an Apple aluminium keyboard, all the other details are different.

Please read the details I posted in the initial report and also on the linked question on askubuntu.com
