I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 with Unity and want to use KeepassX but the keyboard layout seems to be wrong in this application only. The layout works fine for all other applications. I am using a German keyboard layout. Any ideas?

Put this command to the startup applications:

setxkbmap de

Another option to add the command to the .profile script, as described here
