That's exactly how it is on my system. Now try the following: Open a terminal 
and type

export LANG=de_DE.ISO-8859-15

Now, start kwrite (or any other KDE application) from the commandline, et 
voil?à, the Euro symbol appears. Unfortunately, other programs such as perl 
then complain that the locale is not supported on the system even though I 
removed the comment symbol before the corresponding line in /etc/locale.gen. 
If I set LANG to de_DE.ISO-8859-15@euro, perl stops to complain but the Euro 
symbol does not work anymore under KDE. :-(

Any help appreciated!
