can you start systemsettings from a terminal like this

systemsettings &> output.txt

Then do

cat output.txt | grep keyboard_layout

what's the output of that ?
Also check for the following files

/usr/lib/kde4/kcm_keyboard_layout.so
/usr/share/kde4/services/keyboard_layout.desktop

/usr/share/kde4/services/keyboard_layout.desktop
- cat output.txt return nothing
- /usr/local/lib/kde4/ and /usr/local/share/kde4/services
didnt has kcm_keyboard_layout.so or keyboard_layout.desktop

but has only keyboard.desktop in /usr/local/share/kde4/services

keyboard is a different kcm module. see here:

http://techbase.kde.org/Projects/SystemSettings

If the keyboard_layout module is missing for you, you probably have an incomplete installation.
How did you install kde4 ? What distribution are you using ?

Yesterday I had the same problem, distro is slackware 12.2, you must have an additional package in your system, the problem is I forgot its name, but I remember bookmarking its dependancy, here's the link to it
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs...iso-codes.html
You can see the needed package's name when you do "cmake ." (not cmakekde!) in kdebase-workspace dir. Look at the last 20 lines, you will see recomended packages for getting additional kcm modules. Good luck!

i;ve found it

there's missing component here (kdebase- workspace from SVN version)

+ libxklavier, 3.0 or higher: A XKB foundation library for keyboard handling software <http://freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/LibXklavier>
Recommended for kxkb, the KDE keyboard map switching utility.

its , strange that they ddnt showned up while the cmake was made with binary format:P
