Ubuntu Logitech PRO2000 Keyboard - Keys for (,),= doesn't work

I have a problem with my Logitech PRO2000 wireless keyboard. The Keyboard works fine under Ubuntu 9.10, also most of the special keys for calculator or loudness etc. works.

The Problem are the keys above the Numpad. There are special keys for '=', '(', ')' placed. But they doesn't work under Ubuntu.

Here is the relevant output from xev:

It seems that the keyboard emulates the keys with the keycombination ALT_L + (4, 0).

Is there a possibility to use that keys in Ubuntu?

Sorry for my bad english ;-)
