keyboard not working as expected with gnome/gdm

I have a non-US keyboard (qwertz) and have edited both my xorg.conf and my XFREE86-4 files and set keyboard settings to pc105 and de_CH.

when I log into gnome, it tells me: The X system keyboard settings differ from your current GNOME keyboard settings. Which set would you like to use?

X Settings or Gnome Settings

But no matter what, I can not for example use the @ sign (using alt gr + "2" )

any idea what could be wrong?


output of xprop -root | grep XKB

_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc104", "ch", "basic", ""

which is not entirely correct, it should be pc102 or pc105, and not ch but much more de_CH
