Yes, I tried this, but it doesnt seem to do the keypad correctly.

At the end of the file /usr/share/apps/konsole/vt100.keytab
there is a comment thats not very clear:

# keypad characters as offered by Qt
# cannot be recognized as such.

I wonder what that means, in detail?

The keypad from xterm works fine after a little xmodmaping. I would 
prefer to use konsole, but I couldnt get it to work with or without the 
xmodmapping. It would be good to know it actually had the functionality 
I'm looking for.

Thanks for your input.
