Can't type a backslash?

X1000, gb keymap, gb language, AmigaOne Keyboard from Amigakit.
I was hoping to try and access a network share. For this I need backslash.
The backslash key above enter does not create any onscreen output.

Should it?

Erm... My AmigaONE keyboard from Amigakit does not have a backslash above enter(return). it's next to the left shift key here. I have a hash key next to return, try pressing that, if it works swap the two key tops over.

Mine is a US layout.
I changed the keymap to US and it works. There seems to be no way of getting the \ with a GB keymap.

If you are using a US keyboard you probaly ought to use the US keyboard layout

But if you do use a UK keyboard layout, the backslash should be on the key between the 'left shift' and 'z'

Cheers Broadblues, I will take a look. I blame those Welsh folk at Amigakit for only stocking Yank keyboards in their anti Englishness

On a swedish layout it is using AltGr (or just Alt) and the ?+ key which is to the right of 0(zero) (on a swedish layout). Worth trying... Try Alt and all keys in the upper-right corner, and the key between LShift and Z as ppl mentioned. I have |(pipe) and arrows on that key though...

Try enabling (ticking) "Classic Amiga KB" from prefs/Input.

Guys, instead of keeping the guesses flowing like that, try using the KeyShow program in SYS:Utilities.

That should show exactly which key combo(s) will produce a given character with your current charset and keymap.

One of the best - and longest - unknown secrets of AmigaOS .

Maybe it is a option to modify the keymap to match the keyboard?
Keymaps are textfiles since 4.0...

My AmigaONE keyboard is UK layout, though I mainly use the SAM keyboard via MKShare

As an aside, do you really need the backslash key for network shares? Samba and FTP both use forward slashes for their paths and roots - it's only accessing shares from within Windows that I know of that uses backslash for paths.

keyshow suggests that backslash is the key between z and left shift, Unfortunately, I do not have that key. z and left shift are immediate neighbours. aw well.

In that case, you have probably chosen the wrong keymap in Input prefs.
