My German sux rox, but I don't understand why the operating system
doesn't just handle this.

I do write in Spanish occasionally, and I have installed a Spanish
keyboard layout in the operating system. Although my computer has a US
English keyboard, switching to the Spanish keyboard allows me to type
as though I was on a Spanish computer. Doesn't this work for German? Or
does Scribus somehow ignore the keyboard layout?
