French keyboard PowerBook G4 ( alu ) with KDE

Hi All,

i've been struggling for a few days tying to have my keyboard mapped correctly on my PowerBook Alu G4.
I'm running debian sid with kernel 2.6.10 and KDE 3.3.2.
After looking on the web i found some info ( mostly the files located at http://www.linux-france.org/ftp/macintosh/kbd-mac-fr.tar.gz ). I've applied these recepies but with no success. The keyboard is mostly ok but i'm missing some important keys:
{|}~[] the Euro sign and possibly more.
My XF86Config-4 section for the keyboard is as follows:

Identifier      "Generic Keyboard"
Driver          "keyboard"
Option          "CoreKeyboard"
Option          "XkbRules"      "xfree86"
Option          "XkbModel"      "macintosh"
Option          "XkbLayout"     "fr_new"

with fr_new installed from the package found above.

Has anyone got a fully functional keyboard with a configuration like mine ?
Any hint would be greatly appreciated !
