Ticket #6756 (closed defect: fixed)
Solaris guest on Solaris host does not recognize Sun US Unix keyboard
|Reported by:||Tipo874||Owned by:|
I'm running an OpenSolaris guest (snv_139) in VBox 3.2.0 on an OpenSolaris host (snv_139), using a Sun Ray 2 as the display device.
I have noticed that the Sun US Unix Type 6 keyboard I'm using doesn't seem to be recognized by the guest. Specifically only two (Stop and Again) of the Sun specific keys in the leftmost keypad transmit anything, and they do not transmit the same key codes as on the host.
My main grief is that the Meta keys appear to be handled as Alt, and this is very unfortunate for an avid xemacs user.
I have Meta_R defined as the Host key, so the VBox framework can differentiate between the key codes, but Meta_L, sends the same key codes as Alt_L, as can be seen with "xev".
