KDE and locales

I installed KDE 3.0 on SPARC/Solaris 9 and I have problems with setting 
the keyboard. My locales are set to cs_CZ.ISO8859-2 and all applications 
display the ISO8859-2 characters. However, I cannot type them. In CDE, 
which is the default desktop on Solaris, I can type with Compose key - 
Compose+v+c yields c-caron, etc. These Compose sequences are defined in 
the file /usr/openwin/lib/locale/iso8859-2/Compose. I suspect that KDE 
ignores this file or perhaps it looks for it in another directory. How 
can I learn or does anyone know which directory KDE searches for the 
Compose file? I also suspect that there may be a mismatch between 
Solaris and KDE names of locales. Does KDE use the name cs_CZ.ISO8859-2 
or does it use another variant?

Thanks for the replies.
