keyboard layout and xfs-xtt/KDE font problem

Hash: SHA1

hi all,

i have two problems here driving me mad:
since i started OpenOffice (with LANG=de_CH oowriter) this morning my keyboard 
layout is broken. i'd like my US keyboard layout back but all i get is de_CH 
(i guess). setting LANG=en_US does not work (LANG is always C), setting the 
keyboard layout in the control panel does not work (i can switch keyboard 
layouts from the kde keyboard tool in kicker but all that changes is the 
icon. keys remain the same). in console (i.e. without kde) things are ok 
(LANG is C there too) and if i logon as root in kde the layout is ok as well.
i tried renaming ~/.kde to ~/.kde.renamed before loging into kde which fixed 
the problem but obviously made kde forget about my beloved configuration.
what's the point? where in ~/.kde/ do i have to change things to get my us 
layout back?

on the second problem i've been working for 3 weeks now:
i have one linux workstation and one linux server both running debian sid. on 
the workstation i have XFree86 and KDE 3.2.1. on the server i run xfs-xtt. 
i've removed all FontPath lines in XF86Config-4 leaving only 'FontPath        
"tcp/guineapig:7110"' where guineapig is the hostname of the server. i guess 
xfs-xtt is working because X won't start if i comment out this FontPath line.
still i have no fixed fonts in KDE and also other fonts don't seem to be 
working as they should. i tried all the tricks and hints i could find (i.e. 
running fc-cache, reinstalling font packages on the server, comparing config 
files from a working installation at home...) but i could not solve my 
problem. how can i get fonts working with KDE and xfs-xtt?

i'm sure (well at least i hope) someone could help me with this, please. this 
stuff really drives me nuts. konsole is just not usable without readable 
fonts and for each 10 keys i tipe i've got 5 to correct because of this 
different keyboard layout. somebody please help me solve these problems.

suggestions and hints will be greatly appreciated. caspar kurt

i can't even tell if someone can understand all this angry babbling of mine.
