OK, that was it for the keyboard matter. Thx..

Similar question:
my portable is 1280x768 pixels, but KDE comes up in 1024x768, making 
'wide' icons and text :-(
I tried to add in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf in Section "Screen" for
all entries in Subsection "Display" (different Depths), a line
Modes "1280x784" ... but this does not help..
In KDE menu / Settings / peripherals / Display / the only choice
for Screen Size remains 1024x768 without alternatives (as before) ...
How to remedy?
