The "sk_qwerty" layout is obsolete; "qwerty" and "qwerty_bksl" are now
included as variants of the "sk" layout. 

Try this keyboard definition in your xorg.conf:

    Option    "XkbLayout"     "us,sk"
    Option    "XkbVariant"    ",qwerty"
    Option    "XkbOptions"    "grp:menu_toggle,grp_led:scroll"

(",qwerty" means "basic for us, qwerty for sk")
