Hi Rolf,

How is your keyboard setup (in TDE)?

When I install, TDE defaults to US keyboard and I have to install the swiss 
keyboard (Trinity Control Center -> Regional & Accessibility -> Keyboard 
Layout). Of course you probably have it in German...

Console keyboard is probably controled by your distribution's settings.

I don't advise using accented letters in passwords and filenames (although I 
do use @, but I know where it is on the US keyboard). But you can set a 
provisory password, change the keyboard, then teh password.

I don't know if the login screen's keyboard is controled by root's keyboard
