If anybody else stumbles upon this: After a world update, lightdm did not not load my "de" keymap anymore, resulting in difficulties typing my login password. In the upper right corner of lightdm, de.DE-UTF8 is displayed as active locale, but is is in fact not active, instead the US standard.

Before, I had a working DE keymap at login screen.

After logging in to KDE, keyboard layout is correct, also in plain VT shells.

I am not sure which update triggered this, could be x11-apps/xkbcomp. The whole list of updated packages is below.

I have no X11 keyboard setting and have not needed one since.

SOLUTION:
Add to /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf:
Code:
display-setup-script=/usr/bin/setxkbmap de

(de being my keyboard layout)


Updated packages, the culprit among them:
