AltGR not working when using VRDP

Postby tbenk » 8. Jan 2008, 11:13

Hi,

i am running VirtualBox 1.5.4 on a windows xp machine (host). the guest is ubuntu 7.10.

When i use the remote desktop connection feature, and the standard windows remote desktop client, my AltGr key does not work anymore so that it is impossible to enter '@', '|' or '\' symbols.

My keyboard layout is german.

Any hints how i can get it working?

Greetings,
-timo

Hi,

this is a workaround for the AltGr Problem. However, the AltGr key itself is still not working on my system. This workaround uses the "context menu" key for AltGr funtionality.


Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
linux:~ # xmodmap -e "clear mod5"
linux:~ # xmodmap -e "clear mod3"
linux:~ # xmodmap -e "keycode 117 = Mode_switch Multi_key"
linux:~ # xmodmap -e "add mod3 = Mode_switch"
linux:~ # xmodmap -pke > ~.xmodmaprc
[/code]
