I cannot type the caret character '^' in native KDE apps, such as plasmoids, editors (Kate, KWrite), etc.
It worked in previous (older) versions of KDE (3.5, I think). I believe it may be related to the fact that I'm using a keyboard with a german layout, however, it would seem farfetched - I can type the caret character just fine in non-KDE apps (such as chrome, firefox, etc).
I tried switching keyboard layouts, but no cigar. What's going on? What do I have to change to get the caret character back?
