Nice looking keyboard. Excluding Home and End there are
AllWhatCanNeed. (maybe on arrows with shift?) There are some button
which do not work on my debian. Do they work on yours?
shift+7  = ?    should be /
shift+0  = +    should be =
shift+.   = :     should be ;

öä and umlaut-u do not affected by CAPSLOCK.

y and z are swapped (joke)
