You need to set the keyboard type to be 'Macintosh' and not GB.

This can be done from the GUI menu or from the raspi-config program (sorry no Pi handy today).

Leave your location and language as GB / English.

  • I have the keyboard as Macintosh: 0XKBMODEL=Macintosh and XKBLAYOUT' ="us" sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration come back with: /var/lib/dpkg/info/keyboard-configuration.config: 1: /etc/default/keyboard: 0XKBMODEL=Macintosh: not found.

  • No big rush on this. It's a problem I also have with a Mac Aluminium KB on a Pi4 (RaspiOS) I have added a couple of pics although these tell the same story as my earlier comment. – forestDM Dec 31 '20 at 21:41
  • Is the keyboard option English (UK, Macintosh) on the Pi? I know I set that on a Debian 10 VM. (No where yet with Pi - mind not good this weekend hence surfing at 4AM). – user115418 Jan 3 at 3:56
  • I presume by "keyboard option" you mean - /etc/default/keyboard. Where OXKBMODEL=Macintosh See top pic – forestDM Jan 3 at 21:27
