    I was facing the same issue and I used below mentioned code and after doing that I was not having any issue.

    Code:
    # find out what key code is mapping to the "less" and "greater" signs
    $ xmodmap -pk | grep greater
         60    	0x002e (period)	0x003e (greater)	
         94    	0x003c (less)	0x003e (greater)	0x007c (bar)	0x00a6 (brokenbar)	0x007c (bar)	0x00a6 (brokenbar)
    
    # edit (or create) ~/.xmodmaprc and include the following line in it
    keycode 94 = grave asciitilde
    
    # run xmodmap
    $ xmodmap ~/.xmodmaprc
    Hope it will help someone.
