Which XkbLayout do you use? Maybe "altgr-intl" is not defined for it.

To see the allowed XkbVariants for your layout, you can use something
grep xkb_symbols /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/us | cut -d\" -f2
(You have to replace "us" with the name of your XkbLayout, e.g. "de" for
a German keyboard.)
The files in /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/ include comments that explain
the ideas behing the different XkbVariants.
If you still have the Xandros installation (dual-boot maybe) then you
can run "setxkbmap -print" in an X terminal to see which layout and
variant it uses.
You can also configure your keyboard using only the KDE graphical
interface. Go to "Control Center -> Regional & Accessibility -> Keyboard
layout" and activate "Enable keyboard layouts" on the "Layout" tab. Then
choose your keyboard model from the drop-down menu and select your
desired layout in the "Available layouts" pane on the left. After
pressing the "Add >>" button, you should see the layout listed under
"Active layouts" on the right hand side. If you click on it there you
can choose from all the valid layouts with the drop-down menu that sits
below the "Active layouts" box.
