Description

Running VB on a Lenovo T60p running Ubuntu 9.10, fully updated. VB reports 'Your keyboard type does not appear to be known to VirtualBox.' (I also have a T60 w/Ubuntu 9.10, and VB appears to work fine on it.)

VB log file attached.

Rather strange, it looks like VirtualBox can't work out the keycode for your left control key. Any ideas why that might be?

Replying to michael:

On both the T60p (where VB doesn't know my kb) and the T60 (where it apparently does) I've mapped the 'Caps Lock' key to make it another control key. I've used the built-in kb mapper (Keyboard Indicator 2.28.0) to do so....

I suspected it might be something like that... In this case though it looks to VirtualBox like the key is simply missing, which we would actually like to work. It should be fixed in the latest code.
