The problems with shortcut keys in KDE have a long story, e.g.


and I found it to be quite nerve-racking. Once it worked with patching,
the no longer after an update and so on.

In the end I chose xbindkeys which does a nice job with _all_ my keys,
even the Calculator key that seems to cause KDE trouble all over the
planet. ;-)

I invoke it a KDE startup of course and the config file is easily done
with an initial xbindkeys -mk before the first use.

Just my 2 centimes.
