You didn't mention what your host architecture was. man qemu mentions a
-k keyboard language option, but says, "This option is only needed where
it is not easy to get raw PC key‐codes (e.g. on Macs, with some X11
servers or with a VNC display). You don’t normally need to use it on
PC/Linux or PC/Windows hosts." You could try experimenting with that.
Sorry, I forgot to mention: The host is a Fedora i86_64 installation,
and up to now I have used virt-manager for creation and management of
the Win XP guest.
As a try, I started the guest with
$ sudo qemu-kvm XP.img
and even without the option "-k de", this gave me the proper German
keyboard layout in XP.
Back to virt-manager, the old behaviour reappeared. I would like to stay
with this tool because of its easy ways to configure the hardware. Are
there any hidden configuration slots that I have missed, or is it time
for filing a bug report against virt-manager?
