EW3113 am I missing something or is EW3113 a HUGE FAIL?

Postby jeafke » 04 Jun 2018, 03:52

So I bought myself a slimsize lightweight wireless keyboard (EW3113), mainly to have it connected to a Linux server to do some quick interventions.
Now I wanted to type the following in the terminal:
Code: Select all
someprogram > /home/jeafke/somefile

Now the issue is... I can't! For the love of god I cannot find the < > \ keys or combination.
Their is a fn key combo for - * / + . which is ridiculous because those are represented TWICE that way!!!!
For the love of god can someone explain this to me? Some other slim keyboards have a FN combo with W and X for those 2 < > characters. But that isn't the case on this one!

HELP! This is completely useless for me this way. Maybe there's a FN combo which isn't marked in blue on the keyboard????

Dear jeafke,

Unfortunately the current EW3113 does not support the <,> keys we are aware of the problem. You could be able to type the <,> by using the Unicode

< = CTRL+Shift+U+003C
> = CTRL+Shift+U+003E

Euhm... Okay Thanks for the workaround. But that seems somewhat complex every time, what's the unicode hex representation for a backslash? Tbh... This is used allot in windows networking and selling it as a windows and smart-TV keyboard is seriously compromising any user experience confronted with this. Is there an update planned or exchange program maybe in the future? Because this seems not a "feature" but a just a big mistake in fabrication.

Kind regards.
