Bug#585067: keyboard-configuration: No alt+gr keys working after some time

 cat /etc/default/keyboard
# If you change any of the following variables and HAL and X are
# configured to use this file, then the changes will become visible to
# X only if HAL is restarted.  In Debian you need to run
# /etc/init.d/hal restart

# The following variables describe your keyboard and can have the same
# values as the XkbModel, XkbLayout, XkbVariant and XkbOptions options
# in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.


# If you don't want to use the XKB layout on the console, you can
# specify an alternative keymap.  Make sure it will be accessible
# before /usr is mounted.
# KMAP=/etc/console-setup/defkeymap.kmap.gz

If AltGr works in the console then most likely keyboard-configuration
has generated correctly the keyboard configuration file.  But in order
to be sure, please send us the contents of the file

Thank you for your detailed report.  I noticed that you have chosen
'Right Alt (AltGr)' to function both as Compose key and as AltGr key.
In this case keyboard-configuration will configure this key to function
as AltGr (which is exactly what you want).  But if you want the right
Alt key to function as AltGr then it is more natural to select 'No
compose key'.

well for hte moment nothing, i.e. ALTGR, works... so :(

thank you for being kind

All this is only a theoretical suggestion.  As I wrote, in your case
keyboard-configuration will ignore your request to make the right Alt
key function as a Compose key so this should not have affected the bug
you observed in any way.

Let me kwow what I have to try ... I am ready / gonna do all kind of testing on this keyboard....
