I am using the following set-up:
Arch Linux 2.6.31 (Host machine) Windows Vista Enterprise (latest update) (Guest machine) VirtualBox Version 3.0.8
I am using a non-standard keyboard layout, namely DvorakX (I did attach the keyboard layout file for the X-Server to this report -- in case this helps), on the host machine, i.e. on Linux. I know this keyboard map is not available on Windows, but I am happy to use QUERTY on the guest machine, i.e. on the Windows. I chose the German (IBM) on the guest machine. I can type, however, I experience the following:
Quite a lot of physical keys are swapped (with reference to the layout on the guest, i.e. QUERTY) for example 'f' with 'g', or 'j' with 'k', etc. Also, I cannot type in numbers at all!
When I change the keyboard layout on the guest (Windows), the same physical keys a swapped.
I don't have any idea how work around this.
