After upgrading I also have the problem of not being able to switch to virtual 
consoles. I tried your suggestion and it works fine (although I 
substituted "us" for "de" in the layout).

I have put that in a script which is run on startup of KDE. However, is there 
someway to do this for all users upon startup of X rather than individually 
putting the script in each user's Autostart directory? If there is a way to 
do it... well, how?

Thanks,
Rick
