Lightbulb Solution found: Xnest with German Keyboard / Umlaute


I wondered why I missed German Keyboard mapping when I started Xnest
inspite of my whole Linux is running with German Language fine.

After checking every possibility I finally found the solution by trying.

As I searched the whole web without finding a solution but found many posts of
people having the same problem I want to post the solution here.

It is the -kb option!

Xnest -query IP_or_Hostname :1 -kb

Xnest -help says:
-kb disable the X Keyboard Extension

Hope this is of help for someone.
