I don't believe this was your mistake: IIRC I *never* had a working
notebook keyboard (DE) on Debian after a fresh install .. :) .. If
it's just your keyboard on X that does not seem to work, you might let
people know what keyboard layout you have: qwertz or qwerty, French,
Italian or English, etc. ... this way people could be able to send you
their .xmodmap file that you can test/load with a 'xmodmap .xmodmap'
(w/o the quotes)
I'm no sure whether with a recent X the following notes are still
helpful: "How To Set Up Your Keyboard For X":
