    I have a japanese bought powerbook installed in JAPAN which obviosly has the Japanese keyboard layout.
    It worked fine.

    I did a clean install with the languge being Australia English.
    Now some of the keys dont correspond to the letters.
    eg the shift 2 key becomes the @ key
    going into system preferences does not help.
    I am very familar with alloptions in Preferences BTW.
    All languge options were downloaded
    How can I get the keys to act normally without doing another clean install with the target Language Japanese

    You either need to learn how to blind type, or set your input language to Japanese and use Romaji.

    I am slowly learning how to blind type. :eek:

    NO No No.
    It worked fine before.
    After the clean install it has errors due to something I did or failed to do

    you know that there's a difference between Romaji input (jap keyboard) and British/Aus/USA input, don't you? In international, add the romaji kotoeri to the input menu tab.

    help?
