There is a HOWTO in our HOWTO Forum for that.

Do you want to use them system-wide, or just with, say, Xine?  If it's just Xine, I can assist you (having set my bluetooth Logitech keyboard up for it) but I must admit, I've had less than shining success system-wide.

It worked.
I selected a keyboard model from the list and its now OK. No need for a restart KDE.
