I have the same problem even with KDE2.1.2 which I installed from the Suse
7.2 CDs. I have a french keyboard (so choosen as primary keyboard layout in
"Personalization->Keyboard layout->Layout"). Though I can't compose
characters with french accents on top nor German Characters with Umlaute
which works the same way on a french Keyboard. Everything works fine with
StarOffice and Netscape but all KDE applikations fail.
What to do??? Any ideas
