Hmm...  Something seems to be missing from your install.  Either that or 
it's a different version, or maybe your distribution did something 
different with it.

It's not under input actions, by chance, it it?  Here (Gentoo, kde 4.3.3 
and 4.3.4 both the same, IDR before that), under input actions, I only 
have one module, called just that, "input actions", which seems like an 
obvious accident of some sort.  Maybe either my distribution screwed 
something up (unlikely, they usually keep packages as close to upstream 
as is reasonable) or your distribution made the obvious fix and put the 
keyboard and mouse stuff under input actions as well.

But you said the ctrl-F1 thru FX should work, for now.  So at least 
there's a way to switch them now, without having to rely on the pager 
plasmoid or app and the mouse.
