Very basic guess, but does your xorg.conf is reconfigured recently,
check for something like following in xorg.conf:
Identifier "single head configuration"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
Anyways, have you tried 'xinit xterm', to see if X11 is receiving
keyboard input, without KDE ? see, if there're any suspecting error
messages, in your /var/log/Xorg.0.log
