I think what would be needed is to load the proper German console keymap.

The X-server used is IMHO based on the kdrive x.org server which uses
the console keymap (in contrast to full x.org server which uses raw
keyboard events and its own keymap).
Alternatively loading of a German keymap using xmodmap could also be

But both methods require tools which are not installed on the 770 -
xmodmap and loadkeys. loadkeys has the additional problem if needing to
be run as root to load a new console keymap.
So xmodmap would be the easiest approach, I guess. Changing the keymap
might also influence the behaviour of the virtual keyboard.
