KDE has nothing to do with it.

It would help if you explain first what exactly the problem is.

I can not change the keyboard layout.

Tried with several commands

kbd -s
eeprom kbd-type=Croatian


So the only solution is to configure Xorg.conf

I found which line I have to add

Code:
[ Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier  "Keyboard0"
	Driver      "keyboard"
	Option	"XkbModel"	"pc105"
	Option	"XkbLayout"	"croat"
	Option	"XkbOptions"	""
EndSection

What Solaris release are you using ? on what hardware ?
What keyboard did you choose at installation ?
Does it works fine in the text console (without X11 running) ?
Why do you want to change its layout, i.e. what keys are wrong ?

What do you mean kbd doesn't work ? That it doesn't change the layout at all or just the layout is missing some keys ?

Do you run "loadkeys" after running "kbd" ?

How do you type one of these letters, say "ž" with your keyboard ?
