View Full Version : [ubuntu] VMWare Player, Server keyboard problems

March 8th, 2009, 01:31 PM

I had a setup with two computers like this, working without any problems:

-OpenSuse 10.3 running VMWare Server 2.0, Build: 122956
- Virtual Ubuntu 8.04 Server
- Virtual Windows XP SP3
- Virtual Kubuntu 8.10 Desktop

-Ubuntu 8.04, connecting to the Virtual computers on computer 1.

After reinstalling computer 2 with Ubuntu 8.10, several of the keys on my keyboard is not working as it should when connecting to the virtual computers. Arrow-keys, Windows-keys etc.

Arrow-down now functions as a Windows Start key. And the other ones I don't know. I'm using a Norwegian keyboard.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

This one has really been driving me mad. I found a fix at http://www.nalinmakar.com/2008/11/12/vmware-player-and-ubuntu-810-keyboard-mapping-issues/
:) So the arrows problem is no longer a problem. And the Win-Start button is also working again. But I still do not have Norwegian keyboard setup :(

YES!!!! The solution at http://communities.vmware.com/message/1101765#1101765 did it. (I removed the line I added from the link above, before I followed the instructions from the Community pages at VMWare) :)
