I have the problem for 2 days that the keyboard changes in the X, without which I have initiated actions. It is not a simple change between German and English. I could not figure out which keyboard type that is.
It is in Fluxbox an Gnome-
Where is the mistake?
What can I do?

Code:
sys-vor-Ort monster # setxkbmap de
sys-vor-Ort monster # loadkeys de

# nano -w /etc/conf.d/keymaps
# Use keymap to specify the default console keymap.  There is a complete tree
# of keymaps in /usr/share/keymaps to choose from.
keymap="de"

# Should we first load the 'windowkeys' console keymap?  Most x86 users will
# say "yes" here.  Note that non-x86 users should leave it as "no".
# Loading this keymap will enable VT switching (like ALT+Left/Right)
# using the special windows keys on the linux console.
windowkeys="YES"

# The maps to load for extended keyboards.  Most users will leave this as is.
extended_keymaps=""
#extended_keymaps="backspace keypad euro2"

# Tell dumpkeys(1) to interpret character action codes to be
# from the specified character set.
# This only matters if you set unicode="yes" in /etc/rc.conf.
# For a list of valid sets, run `dumpkeys --help`
dumpkeys_charset=""

# Some fonts map AltGr-E to the currency symbol instead of the Euro.
# To fix this, set to "yes"
fix_euro="NO"

sys-vor-Ort monster # dmesg | grep keyboard

you can define your keyboard-layout for X in general: create a file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ that ends in .conf and containbs your keyboard-settings; eg /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-tastatur.conf (this one is mine with German layout, old but it works):
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Keyboard1"
    Driver      "kbd" # i know it's outdated
    #Driver     "evdev"
#    Option "LeftAlt"     "Meta"
#    Option "RightAlt"    "ModeShift"
    Option "XkbRules"   "xorg"
    Option "XkbModel"   "pc105"
    Option "XkbLayout"  "de"
    #Option "XkbVariant"  "nodeadkeys"
EndSection


some DEs/WMs (eg xfce) allow to define their own layout without changing the settings for X.
GOOD LUCK!

For reference, here's a conf that has both DE and US layouts that toggle if both shifts are pressed.

Code:
Section "InputClass"
  Identifier "system-keyboard"
#  Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
  Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys,euro"
  Option "XkbLayout" "de,us"
  Option "XkbOptions" "grp:shifts_toggle"
  MatchIsKeyboard "on"
EndSection
