KDE 4.4 and Thinkpad T61 keyboard layout trouble


I recently switched my openSUSE 11.1 install from KDE 3 to KDE 4.4 via the one-click-install from http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.1/KDE4-DEFAULT.ymp.

I was trying to add a German keyboard layout to the default US layout. But as soon as I enable keyboard layouts (via Configure Desktop-> Language & Regional -> Keyboard Layout -> Enable keyboard layouts), the default layout gets messed up (arrow, pos1, end keys etc. no longer work).

I’m running openSUSE 11.1 on a Lenovo Thinkpad T61. Several keyboard layouts worked fine with KDE 3.

Could it be that some KDE 3 settings are interfering with the KDE 4 settings?

Thanks in advance,

did you manage to solve to problem, and if so how?

I’m having the exact same problem…
