Honestly, I didn’t try to get the keyboard reconfigured. I tried a couple different brands of keyboards I had around the house to see if there was any change, but it didn’t help. Since I set mine up in a full arcade configuration (no need for a keyboard), I just worked around the issue. Since then, I’ve set up WinSCP/Putty to access terminal from my home computer and haven’t had to deal with the issue. For some reason, through WinSCP the keyboard layout is exactly as it should be. I’ve found that, with the Raspberry Pi and Retropie, there is a lot of tinkering to get it where you want it and, more frustrating, (and, to coin a phrase) there seems to be a million ways to skin a cat with it.
