I don't have unofficila packages, i started with stable, then had the
same problem in testing and unstable (all this in the past 5 or 6
I started installing just X server (with xkb and other stuff like xdm,
should be x-window-system package), then aded xfce4, kde and gnome,
none of them worked except one version of KDE (should be on testing)
in wich i set up italian keyboard layout (from kcontrol). With italian
layout it odo worked. But note that all the other key worked fine
before (like all the symbols thata are in different position in it and
us keyboards)
