Under keyboard settings I have 'Germany'.

See http://paste.opensuse.org/24722267

Line 1 is typed with 'Germany'. Line 3 is typed with 'Germany Eliminate dead keys'.

If I use 'Germany' I can type but the same keystrokes with 'Germany Eliminate dead keys' produce 'a.

Can you try using 'Germany' rather than 'Germany Eliminate dead keys'.
