general keyboard question - xmodmap and slackware


first thing:

i started using xfce4 under slackware 9.1 but the Alt Gr key doesn't seem to work the way i'd like it to work - in fact it doesn't work at all
the strange thing about it, it works with kde

I'm using a german keyboard
so what can i do about it?

second thing:

i created a .Xmodmap in my home dir where my special keys are configured (there is no fault in this part, i did this before and it worked)
but i can't use those "new" buttons with kde nor with xfce4

---

i pretty appreciate any links to sites explaining the whole stuff clearly
i want to control IT, not the other way round

Hi again,

though there are no replys on my old question here is a new one on this toptic

ive created my own .Xmodmap in my home dir to use my multimedia keys
but slackware 9.1 doesnt use it automatically with kde. i fixed this with a script in the .kde/Autostart folder (but i dont like this way)
why doesnt slackware use my Xmodmap? which damn map is it using at all? i cant find it...

then if i start my .Xmodmap (xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap)
the "Alt Gr" key doesnt work anymore, which is quite annoying because i need it on my german keyboard to use these chars: @~|\}][{
those are quite usefull dont you think?
that doesnt make any sense to me at all...

please help
thanks
