except for the '~' everything s' working fine with my keyboard. Unfortunaly, whenever I press ALT-GR and '+' the '~' appears immediately. Well, of course I have not set 'nodeadkeys':
$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-keyboard.conf Section "InputClass" Identifier "keyboard" MatchIsKeyboard "yes" Option "XkbModel" "latitude" Option "XkbLayout" "de" Option "XkbOptions" "" EndSection
I also tried playing with a few 'XkbOptions' and everything s' just working fine. ^ ´` the all behave the way they should - except for '~'.
^ needs two hits, ~ just one. hmpf.
Oh, without running X, means typing in tty typing AltGr + does nothing (well, in there i don't need ~, although it would be useful sometimes)
$ cat /etc/vconsole.conf KEYMAP=de-latin1 FONT=Lat2-Terminus16
Anybody has an idea how to fix that? Is there maybe another file that's supposed to change?
What DE are you using? AFAIK, e.g. Gnome doesn't use X.Org configuration files... you have to set your language and keyboard the other way, e.g. via GUI; options can be added by dconf-editor and there is also some bug with keyboard layout while not using GDM to log in... all that and more at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GNOME - search for "keyboard" keyword and will find all you need. Same with other mayor DEs, like KDE, I believe.
Edit: AltGr++ should work on tty too; I've missed that part of your post, sorry. So it's not DE-related after all...

thanks for your answer.
I'm using LXDE with Openbox as FM (and lxdm with autologin)
Well, finally i managed to fix it by adapting the '/usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/de' - replacing every 'asciitilde' by 'dead_tilde'
However a simple update would rechange everything -- and there s' definetely a way to change ~ the right way.
I use .Xmodmap for this purpose (see "man Xmodmap"):
bp:~$ cat .Xmodmap keycode 35 = plus asterisk Cyrillic_hardsign Cyrillic_HARDSIGN dead_tilde dead_macron NoSymbol NoSymbol U093C U091E
To know or not to know ...
... the questions remain forever.
ah, ok, thanks - gonna fix it that way for X - sounds like an update-secure-option.
Well, regarding tty, is there any workaround i can use?
