Yes, I found that tip on Wolfram's web page. But, the problem is that
Mathematica doesn't understand AltGr key. Wolfram's programmers know
for this problem and trying to solve it.

I didn't edit that file you mentioned above, but i mapped the offended
keys on unused keys on my win95 keyboard using xmodmap (much less  to
edit, works system wide)

-pureKeys doesn't have any effect

I have another problem: can't reach croatian language specific
characters (such as S with litle v above, equivalent to Sch, etc). you
can use german language specifics (such as Aumlaut, Oumlaut etc)?
