Ticket #2263 (closed defect: fixed)
Some keys on Japanese keyboard are not recoginzed on Solaris host.
|Reported by:||sayama||Owned by:|
VirtualBox2.0.0 improved the problem that some keys on localized keyboard are not recognized. However, some keys on Japanese keyboard are not worked correctly on Solaris yet because the meaning of key code is bit different. I tried to test it on OpenSolaris nv_97 with using xev command.
- <Katakana/Hiragana> key is recogized as <Kanji>
- <Henkan> key and <Muhenkan> key are not recogized.
I looked the file under src/VBox/Frontends/VirtualBox4/src/linux/keyboard-types.h and found that these are not correctly mapped. I created the patch for this issue and attached it. Could you please merge it if it is OK?
