Run 'xev' and see which key symbols you get. E.g.
"END" key
KeyRelease event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x5800001,
root 0x48, subw 0x0, time 133294200, (-50,454), root:(940,510),
state 0x0, keycode 103 (keysym 0xff57, End), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 0 bytes:

"Page Down" key
KeyPress event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x5800001,
root 0x48, subw 0x0, time 133299716, (-50,454), root:(940,510),
state 0x0, keycode 105 (keysym 0xff56, Next), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 0 bytes:

If the keys are not what they're suppost to be you'll have to use
another keyboard definition file in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, or
switch keys with xmodmap (in your ~/.Xmodmap file) (you can do that
with xkeycaps).
