Unable to map non-English keys
I reported this in the forums, but was told to report it here. So here it is:
I am unable to map keys specfic to the German language keyboard. Specifically, I am unable to map "Ã¼", "Ã¶", or "Ã¤", which have designated keys on the german keyboard. When I try, the mapped key window says "none" and I am unable to use the key in-game.
For all I have tried it seems that I am unable to map any character that is not included in English standard encoding. English characters that can be obtained on my German keyboard with some typing-gymnastics are mappable (e.g. the "]" which requires my AltGr + 9).
This is new to the Linux build of .19, because I was able to map these keys in .18.4 under Windows. I must admit though, that I have not tried it in .19 under Windows.
Running Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise) on Dell XPS 15z with German standard keyboard. I have checked out some stuff to ensure that is (most likely) not a system issue, i.e. the keys are mappable in other games and applications.

I knew I forgot something important, but in this setup of the bugtracker I seem to be unable to edit my original post, so here's an addition to the system specs: My Ubuntu 12.04 is setup as an English (US) locale - but it runs on a laptop I bought in Germany so the keyboard is German standard.

I can not map any keys that are not also present as a key on the US layout (Ã¶Ã¤Ã¼ÃÂ´+#<) (although some are included in ASCII).
Most of the keys are located somewhere to the very right of the keyboard on the german standard layout and rarely used in games. But I normally use the german neo2 layout for typing, which has Ã¼Ã¶Ã¤ on the keys that normally hold yxc (zxc on US layout) and so I have to change keyboard layout when playing KSP.
Currently have this problem with 0.23 on Linux (Fedora 20).
