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
Compressing /etc/kbd/default.kmap: 79.2% -- replaced with /etc/kbd/default.kmap.gz
Do you want changes to take effect right now ? [y]
...but nothing works.

I think I need somethink like the emacs20:
Thanks for everything
