KDE Keyboard Shortcuts with different Keyboard Layout


Hi.

During the Debian setup I had to find out what to do to be able to write in Greek in KDE. Now I can read/write everywhere but keyboard shortcuts don't work for both English and Greek layouts.

I had to set up most of them in Greek as alternatives. For example shortcut "Change Keyboard Layouts" is set to:
Primary->Alt-Ctrl-K
Alternative->Alt-Ctrl-Greek_K (which in fact print's in screen as a square like any other Greek character)

I thought this was a deep linux problem and coped with it since yesterday. I created a new user for some tests and I realized that the shortcuts work well there! What should I change in my user to do the same.

Aparently my Greek work.
The question is how to put some fonts there
because at first it seems there are only these arials.

The easy way?
