Subject Keyboard mapping with Ubuntu 16 and CentOS 7
Date Tue, 10 Jan 2017 20:08:26 GMT
Hi all,

We are having some strange issues when connecting to machines running Ubuntu 16 and CentOS
7 via VNC, where the keyboard mappings will not work properly. 

The problem exists both for physical keyboard input and when using the on-screen keyboard.
Our physical keyboards have Norwegian layouts, and the on-screen keyboard has the en-US layout.
I have not been able to test using an English layout physical keyboard.

Examples from a Mac (Norwegian keyboard <>):
- ‘ (top left, above the tab key) becomes ‘æ'.
- ‘<' (bottom left, besides Shift) becomes ‘,’ 
- ‘-‘ (bottom right, below return key) becomes ‘+'
- ‘+’ (top right, below F10 and F11) becomes ‘\’

Examples from the on-screen keyboard (en-US):
- ‘=‘ (below F10) becomes ‘\’
- ‘\’ (below Backspace) becomes ‘
- ‘[‘ becomes ‘å’
- ‘]’ does not work (nothing happens)
- ‘;’ becomes ‘ø' 
 - ‘`’ (above Tab) becomes ‘|' (pipe)

I can produce examples from a Windows computer tomorrow, if needed. 

For other operating systems (e.g. Windows, Debian, CentOS 6 and older, and older Ubuntu's)
everything works as intended. 

Can anyone else reproduce this, or could it be some misconfiguration of the machines we are
connecting to? (All machines we connect to are VM's, so there is a possibility that the cause
could be with the VM template we are using, if some misconfiguration on the target could cause
such an issue). 

Kind regards
