Yes, at the time where the "testing" section works...
Here is the output:

  What keytable to load? de-latin1-nodeadkeys
  You selected keymap /usr/share/keymaps/i386/qwertz/de-latin1-nodeadkeys.kmap.gz
  Sorry, I can't make you test this keymap now (showkey does not accept --keymap).
    NOTE: Answering anything else than 'y', 'n', or RETURN
  	  will reload the kernel's default keymap.
  Do you accept the chosen map for installation ?  [y] 
  Removing removing /etc/kbd/default.kmap.gz
  Generating include-less /usr/share/keymaps/i386/qwertz/de-latin1-nodeadkeys.kmap.gz
  Saving keymap to /tmp/fileBXdCb5
  Loading /usr/share/keymaps/i386/qwertz/de-latin1-nodeadkeys.kmap.gz
  Loading /tmp/fileBXdCb5
  Compressing /etc/kbd/default.kmap:       79.2% -- replaced with /etc/kbd/default.kmap.gz
  Do you want changes to take effect right now ?  [y] 
  Loading /etc/kbd/default.kmap.gz

...but nothing works.

I've done it. I really don't know why it doesn't work..

Within emacs yes, at an ordinary xterm, no. The same under the console. when is start emacs i can use "öäü" (i'm writing currently with emacs), but within the console--nothing. 

I think I need somethink like the emacs20:


Thanks for everything
