yes, exactly that's what I mean. the latin "k" has no equivalent in other
languages (in terms of key code). Windows is doing this wisely since the
beginning by setting the switch to ALT+SHIFT, which is language
independent. I like the abbility to change things in kde, so I preffer to
set it to ALT+CTRL+(richt arrow).
In your case german "k" is equivalent to english "k" thus switch is working,
for all people using latin. I don't know if it's working for greek or
hebrew. If someone can report it would be interesting to know.
