thanks for your answer - I want to give my answer to it.

Sorry - I was used that much to it that I forgot I use a german keyboard.

Oh, this is an important point. Nevertheless, I want to add that it has to be 
possible. The reason for this is: Before I reinstalled the whole system, I 
made an upgrade from Kubuntu 8.04 (KDE 3) to 9.04 (KDE 4) - and after rebootng 
the system, I both did get an KDE 4 desktop and working key bindings. I know 
that this may also be related to some of Ubuntu' s known technology, but it 
was working - I saw it on my own laptop.

And also, I can switch the cube on with <CTRL>-<F11> (default settings)... I 
also tried to only use 2 keys (eg <CTRL>+<LeftMouse>), but no single button of 
my mouse was recognizes. So the question is: What goes wrong here? I doubt 
that it' s a general question, because I can left-click on things in my KDE 4 
desktop, so the first step would be to find out why left mouse button is not 
taken at all for ANY (!) key binding function.

Any ideas?
