Sadly, \*me too*
But I have a US keyboard, so it \*shouldn't* be this weird !
I'm using VMware Server, with a 2-seat multi-seat system with the evdev driver.
In a Windows GuestOS, the Arrow Keys and the "middle" keys (as the previous poster calls them) all do something else. So does Right Control, Right Windows, Right Alt and Windows "menu" key
This is a Linux host, and the vmware-server-console run's locally.
I've tried adding xkeymap.fileName = /usr/lib/vmware/xkeymap/us104 to every vmware "config" file I can find.
By using KeyTweak (someone posted it on here somewhere) and changing the Keyboard Layout in the registry to :
00 00 00 00 // header
00 00 00 00 // version
0C 00 00 00 // 13 entries (including this counter)
38 E0 1C E0 // NumPad Enter -> Right Alt
5C E0 7E 00 // ??? -> Right Windows
1D E0 51 E0 // Page Down -> Right Control
4B E0 38 E0 // Right Alt -> Left Arrow
48 E0 37 E0 // Print Screen -> Up Arrow
50 E0 5C E0 // Right Windows -> Down Arrow
4F E0 5B E0 // Left Windows -> End
49 E0 35 E0 // NumPad / -> Page Up
51 E0 5D E0 // Context Menu -> Page Down
35 E0 52 E0 // Insert -> NumPad /
1C E0 50 E0 // Down Arrow -> NumPad Enter
00 00 00 00 // NULL Terminator
I was able to remap most of the non-correct keybindings.
But Insert, Delete, Home and Right-Arrow are still FUBAR
I got another utility last night to tell me that the Insert and Delete keys aren't even being registered as pressed (no BIOS code, no Windows code) and the Home/Right Arrow are both sending the NumLock code.
The keyboard works fine when I use a remote console, so I might try launching the local consoles telling them to connect to the local server via the NIC (remotely), at least it will go over the loopback device, and shouldn't be that much of a problem...
At least it will show if the local console is the problem, which I've read somewhere it can be
Hello. Although I was also afflicted by the same problem.
My keyboard is us keyboard, xkbdisable.
It solved (probably...).
