Hi,

I have a running MacOS Mojave VM running on Proxmox (per this guide).

However, if my local machine is running Linux - how do I sent a Command key (⌘) through to the VM, using the noVNC client?

Thanks,
Victor

maybe 'meta' (the windows key on most keyboards)?

you could also ask on the novnc github (https://github.com/novnc/noVNC)
sinec macos as guest is not really supported by us...

The recommended way (by the people that wrote all the guides) of running MacOS inside PVE is to use MacOS's VNC server, which gives much better performance. Maybe they also mapped the keys correctly.
