Hi,
i am sorry, i don't speak swedish yet, but soon i hope to be able to post in this language here :wink:

My problem is to find out which encoding map i have to set up in order to have all the letters.
Now i am in iso8859-1 i can type all letters but a° .

Kan du hjälpa mig?

ISO-8859-1 should work just fine.
Code:
$ showkey -a

Press any keys - Ctrl-D will terminate this program

å       229 0345 0xe5
Å       197 0305 0xc5
^D        4 0004 0x04
$ locale charmap
ISO-8859-1

You can also use ISO-8859-15 and UTF-8. What keymap setting do you have in rc.conf and Xkblayout in xorg.conf? Try sv-latin1 and se, respectively.
