hello,

as a bootcode i used till now as per advice in this forum "kmap=qwertz/de-latin1".
it works fine.
now, i want to use the xorg7.4 for using skype.
i created a xorg.conf file as per info file advice in the xorg extension description.
after booting with the xorg.conf file, the "shift" key of the recognized "de" keyboard dont work anymore.
so, i cannot use big letters, no equal sign, no backslah..

hereunder is the xorg conf file
i am not using xorg7.5 because i have issues with access to the browser extension "links" where the menues are nomore accesible with the mouse (another issue posted in this forum; no solution found). Xorg7.5 recognize my "de-latin1" keyboard fully (shift key etc.)


has anybody an idea what should be done? Is there an issue in the conf file? (see file content hereunder).
xorg7.4 dont correctly simulate "de-latin1"?
