Slash and question mark not working on ABNT2 keyboard on Linux

Reported by: KhaoticMind Owned by:

I've an Brazilian ABNT2 keyboard and it works flawlessly on my Kubuntu 6.10 system. But when i to launch a VM with the VirtualBox or the VBoxSDL front ends i can't use the "/?"(slash question) key. I works ok if I use remote conection (RDP).

I've checked bug #2 and tried to copy a keyboard.c from wine 0.9.33 to replace src/VBox/Frontends/VirtualBox/src/linux/keyboard.c and recompile the source, but it still doesn't work.

If you feel comfortable with building VirtualBox yourself, try checking out the current SVN snapshot, which should support that key. I just checked up the documentation for Brazilian keyboards, and the current SVN will probably not support the keypad "." key on your keyboard. I have checked in a fix for the last issue which should be in the OSE SVN repository by tomorrow.

Yeap! Fixed on last SVN. Works like a charm ;) All the keypad keys are working all right as well :)
