inside Guacamole, however something should be done to improve that (provide at least some
keyboard combination that simulates the use of those keys).
> Using the onscreen Ctrl/Alt key is not working BTW.

when used? (Especially bad when you like to use a Linux terminal inside Guac, and are used
to using shortcuts like deleting works using Ctrl+W) ^^)
