Plus since it's a local VM, it's JUST as fast as the VM console IMO. Visually this looks like a plus. The system treats the up or down arrow as the selected key when input it. Thank you for this, very helpful.Not sure why it took so long to find though :) 26 November 2008 at 09:53 Anonymous said... Source
I have installed Ubuntu as virtual machine by VMware Fusion. A picture will help... man, thank you! but the problem was resolved after creating a config file on the client - i.e. ~/.vmware/config containing the single line "xkeymap.nokeycodeMap = true" 20 May 2009 at 16:37 jeyno said...

Works for me, Ubuntu Intrepid with VMWare Server 1.0.7 build-108231, CentOS 5.2 netinstall guest. Backslash On Uk Keyboard
However, Solution 3 is much simpler (and newer) so I've put that first.Apparently this issue arrises with the evdev input driver. I simply changed the keyboard settings from "English (United Kingdom)" to "English (United States)" as shown in the snapshot below and it got fixed. Will test further and get back to you.Chris Thompsondsolutionsgroup.com 20 February 2009 at 06:25 Chris Thompson said... have a peek here Thank you!Sorry for offtopic 9 November 2009 at 12:13 changjin said...
the setxkbmap fix works as a fix under these circumstances too:- VM crashes, Workstation/player stops guest OS cold.- You restart the guest OS, you get a message stating that the capture Chris: does RDP work without a network connection? In vista this seems to be an issue where people dont remove the previous layout but change it, when you look into the keyboard area it displays both US and UK
See Solution 2 for more locations of this config file.Solution 2:This is the original Solution 2, and since many comments reference it I have left it numbered so. Thanks :)For what seems like 300 years I've been struggling with the horrible effect of VMWare workstation on my keyboard. often:#!/bin/bash# Script to restore keyboard state after VMWare crashecho "Restoring keyboard state...."setxkbmapecho "done"Oh yes... I needed it to activate the right Alt (Gr) key.

Solution 3 worked like a charm. Big thanks for the guide, it helped me in fixing my arrow/page up/page down/delete keys in Vmware 6.0.4 on Kubuntu Intrepid 8.10. i really appreciate ur steady contribution 01-25-2012, 11:43 AM #4 fionauae Registered Member Join Date: Jan 2012 Posts: 1 OS: windows 7 I had the same problem.

As AppleVis is a community-powered website, we make no guarantee, either express or implied, of the accuracy or completeness of the information contained in this guide. On my Debian squeeze/sid host, the W2K and XP guests' keyboard and mouse were unusable. French (yes, again) 4. I will have to review this at a later date to check why it works for some, but not others.
The solution is to go to the VM's settings, duplicate the profile you are using (VMWare created a Windows 8 profile for me) and then add some custom mappings. The only way to get an arrow command to work was to use 4-8-6-2 on the Apple keyboard keypad. As the root user (sudo won't work in this case), this command should do it for you:echo "xkeymap.nokeycodeMap = true" >> /etc/vmware/configor:echo "xkeymap.nokeycodeMap = true" >> ~/.vmware/configIf you don't have root not working for PT 17 November 2008 at 04:33 Anonymous said...
