If you have updated sid, then try to use this in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Keyboard"
        Driver          "kbd"
        Option          "CoreKeyboard"
        Option          "XkbRules"      "xorg"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "pc104"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "es,us"
        Option          "XkbOptions"    "compose:caps,ctrl:ctrl_aa,\

(and of course switch off all stuff in KDE Control Center).

What does it do?
