Ticket #3253 (closed defect: worksforme)

Opened 5 years ago

Last modified 5 years ago

Numblock keys are broken with rdesktop -> use rdesktop -N command line option

Reported by: xeno Owned by:
Priority: major Component: RDP
Version: VirtualBox 2.1.0 Keywords: rdesktop numlock numpad
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Linux

Description

We found an error with the numblock keys. I will try to explain it as best as i can:

  • open a notepad
  • type some chars
  • type a number on the numblock

---> you have to type the number two times

  • type some numbers
  • hit a direction key

---> they make a number (2,4,6,8)

  • sometimes the "4" key is interpreted as the left-key

I attached the log from a machine where i typed something in the notepad.

Please use -N parameter with rdesktop. Then numpad and cursor keys should work fine.

I'll see if it is possible to support the default rdesktop numlock synchronization method in the VRDP server.

Thanks for feedback. VBox user manual will contain a recommendation to use -N with rdesktop.
