first, many thanks to all.

however, it still does not work -> obviously a lot of possibilities, but no solution, yet

For the console, add this to /etc/rc.conf:

For X11, use this in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier	"Keyboard0"
	Driver		"keyboard"
	Option		"XkbModel" "pc105"
	Option		"XkbLayout" "de"

No need to work with screen mappings for the basic stuff.

may be, but at least I would like to use my keyboard the right way... is this basic?
