thanks a lot paniagor, your advise was good .

my /etc/X11/XF86Config looks like this now :

# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
Option "XkbLayout" "br"
Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"

# Option "XkbDisable"

Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "abnt2"
Option "XkbLayout" "br"
these two were uncommented
Option "XkbLayout" "br"
Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"

it worked fine with everything except for the ~ so i'm going to try it tonight thanx again
for your concern .
