Now it does not work anymore. Even if I change the settings in Control Center
to sth else and back again I still have the same error. (AltGr only works
sporadically). setxkb still shows the correct settings (xkb_symbols   { include
"pc/pc(pc105)+pc/us+pc/de(basic):2"     }; xkb_geometry  { include "pc(pc105)"

Do I have to do more than "setxkbmap -model pc105 -layout us,de -variant
,basic" ?

I have the feeling that most of the time instead of AltGr CTRL or AltGr & CTRL
is send to the server.
