Keyboard layout (German)

Hi fox,

I have a German keyboard and I am facing problem only with tow bottons.

The first problem is the at "@" which supposed to be the result of "AltGR+Q"

I had checked the file /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/de and found the expected line.

key <AD01> { [ q, Q ] [ at ] };

Also I added the following line in /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/pc/de

key <AD01> { [ q, Q, at, at ] };

hoping that It will help, but nothing.

the second problem is the termination of a process on the console using Ctrl+C

Note:both problems disappear in the tty (Ctrl+Alt+F1).The problem is only for konsole (under KDE)

Any hint is highly appreciated.

Here I am adding the relevant Xfree86-4 file

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Driver "keyboard"
Option "CoreKeyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "de"
Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"

note:The settings in the XFree86 is not functioning as assumed, therefore I am using the Control ceter in KDE to select the keyboard layout. Even using the Control ceter could not solve the problems.
