Linux host running on MacBook Hardware: Default release key should be left-winkey

Reported by: smowton Owned by:
Priority: trivial Component: installer
Version: VirtualBox 3.0.4 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Linux


Here's a simple one:

The default key to release a captured mouse from the VBox window is right-ctrl. Quite rightly it is set to Left-Command when running on an OSX host, because some hardware, such as a MacBook Pro, doesn't have such a button, and you'll be unable to free your mouse without some annoyance.

However the same decision isn't taken when you run on Linux (or, I imagine, Windows,) running on a MacBook. It'd be neat if the installer would figure out that we're on an Apple device and set the release key to something different!

So essentially looking at the keyboard type? In theory it could be done, although in days of hotplugged keyboards I have some doubts about it.
