Re: Backtick/Tilde is not working on MacBook powered by Ubuntu

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.
