Hi guys.
I have a problem with my hardware keyboard.
I'm using CM 10 original, and i habe swype software keyboard.
However, when i use my awesome hardware keyboard, i dont get some of the characters, like "?" or ")" and much more, generally "alt characters" have problems working.
Any ideas about that ?

Make certain you are not applying ANY language selection to the keyboards in the settings. The Hardware keyboard is NOT a standard en-US keyboard, and those bindings break the special keys.

But since we can edit the keyboard's code, can't i just make it work with my language?

You can, but there's another method for that. Specifically, the one being discussed in this thread:

The keyboard settings application's applied layouts do not work for us.

I think that thread is dead, can you help me with enabling alt key?
I know how to edit system files etc. But I dont really know what to do exactly, and how to make the changes work.
