I have changed my keyboard layout to German in the file /etc/sysconfig/keyboard to

KEYTABLE="de-latin1" MODEL="pc105+inet" LAYOUT="de" KEYBOARDTYPE="pc"

This seems to work. But the square brackets (ALT-8 and ALT-9) do not work.

Hot to fix?

How is this question related to Sage ?

I am running Sage in VirtualBox in Windows 8.1 I should add.

It's related to Sage because Python uses square brackets a lot! And since we do provide the VirtualBox solution, this is probably a good question. On the other hand, I'm sure others have come across this before...
