Thank you Iva ( I still cant create the à with ` + a, do you know how to
fix this)

You point me to the right direction, the error said it was a problem in
the file /etc/host but it should main /etc/hosts. I added xubuntu there
and it is working know.

Does anyone know a solution for the keyboard problem?
Can't produce these with the keyboard áâë (had this problem also in dapper)


setxkbmap us

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier	"Generic Keyboard"
