Re: Wrong keyboard after KDE4.2 startup, ok after a while [solved]

Hi all,

I kinda solved my problem:

I managed to get the kde keyboard layout switcher to work. Before, I had problems with it - it was disabling the arrow keys etc. Here, selecting "Evdev-managed keyboard" as keyboard type instead of the generic 105 key did the trick. Now this gives me a German layout in all apps I start.

A problem remains with lancelot / kickoff, which is apparently started before the layout switcher is initialized. Here I chose, as a dirty workaround, to kill lancelot via autostart. This means it is restarted the first time I click on the K menu.

Meanwhile, I've recompiled hal, xorg and evdev from debian sid; I have however not yet tested if this makes the problem disappear as a whole. Anyway, I think I won't file a KDE bugreport about this story because I still think that the problem here is related to my weird system setup.
