I've a problem with the keyboard definition utility Keytouch: After setting up a new keyboard layout and restarting my system, the new layout is not applied automatically; rather, I need to start the Keytouch configuration menu and click 'ok' there.

Apparently an old problem, found this archived thread:
Using Keytouch On Opensuse 10.2 / Kde - openSUSE Forums

So, this problem hasn't been fixed yet? Do I still need to setup a script at boot time for the layout to be applied, or is there an easier way?
