As MOL relies upon a keyboard map that is unique from KDE, that is, provides functionality such as APPLE-W for closing windows or APPLE-C/V/X instead of CONTROL-C/V/X, it is possible that the map requires modifying to function with your local version of Mac OS or keyboard.
A discussion ...
I discovered the that tilde (what should be produced from pressing the SHIFT-[and the button to the left of the number 1, on a U.S keyboard] does not produce the correct symbol. I am running full-screen MOL. Is this an MOL issue? or ???
The key to the left of '1' and the '<>' key to the left of 'Z' are often mixed up - probably because these keys are physically interchanged on certain keyboards. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to always get it right automatically; the resulting key mapping depends on too many factors (the keyboard, the kernel version and the MacOS version).
Add 'show_key_trans: true' to /etc/molrc. Press the key to be remapped and examine the logfile. You should see something like:
Keycode 106 (0x6a) -> ADB code 60 (0x3c).In the example abouve, the key to be remapped has keycode 106. Add a line:
remap_key: 106 0x32 (key 106 will now produce the '<>' key (0x32))... where key 106 produces the 'paragraph/fraction' key (0x0A), to /etc/molrc. More detailed instructions (as well as a keyboard chart) is avaialble at www.maconlinux.org/userguide/keyboard.html.
- or -
remap_key: 106 0x0A
