Dead keys problem

Postby Pilli » 1. Feb 2009, 03:29

Hi

I've installed VirtualBox 2.1.2 at OpenSolaris host an I've a problem with keyboard in guest, dead keys ([, `, ^) does not work. With 2.0.6 version keyboard works well.

I try with i386 and AMD64 hots and with OpenSolaris 2008.11 svn 101b and svn 105.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks

Which keyboard layout is used on the host OS?

On a german layout keyboard, SX:CE 104 host, VBox 2.1.2, [ and ^ work,
but the dead keys ' and ` do not work.

I have the same problem. Swedish b105. I have to cut&paste from Solaris into VB to get the keys.

I've filed bug #3256
http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/3256

In the virtualbox logfile do you see something like this:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
00:00:01.032 Your keyboard layout does not appear to fully supported by
00:00:01.033 VirtualBox. If you would like to help us improve the product,
00:00:01.033 please submit a bug report and attach this logfile.
00:00:01.033 (Note: please ignore this if you are using a custom layout.)
00:00:01.033
00:00:01.033 The correct table for your layout is:
00:00:01.033 "^\xb0","1!","2\"","3\xa7","4$","5%","6&","7/","8(","9)","0=","\xdf?","\x0\x0",
00:00:01.033 "qQ","wW","eE","rR","tT","zZ","uU","iI","oO","pP","\xfc\xdc","+*",
00:00:01.033 "aA","sS","dD","fF","gG","hH","jJ","kK","lL","\xf6\xd6","\xe4\xc4","#'
