hi
the notebook is a samsung np n140 with the keyboard set to uk,
i changed the font configuration and encoding in geany and got it to
display the correct character
for the console i added FONT=Lat2-Terminus16 to vconsole.conf,
lxterminal now displays the backslash correctly and all the characters
look good.
thanks
shadrock
