Mine works fine with XkbRules=xfree86, XkbModel=pc105, XkbLayout=se,
XkbVariant=nodeadkeys...  Do they work in e.g. xterm, or is it
GNOME apps you have problems with?  Likely you should run the GNOME
Keyboard utility, which will allow you to switch.  I do, however,
remember it doing stupid things like not showing me real possible
choices until I had a LOCALE/LANG suitable.

Hope this helps,
