If I connect to the VM with a vnc client all the characters work.

Upgrade & dist-upgrade 08/02/2012
uname-a -> Linux 2.6.32-6-srv.domain.fr pve

VM

French language
French keyboard

administration web
French language
Datacenter -> Option -> Keyboard -> French

Thanks.

Sorry for the google translation. :D

Hello,

There was a problem with the keymap.

I commented Alt_L 0x38 in the file /usr/share/kvm/keymaps/modifiers
Since the AltGr working properly.

Hello,

I confirm this problem with fr keyboard in this context:


- kvm vm migrated from a proxmox ve 1.9 to 2.2 -> new install
- all vm's declared again with keyboard fr in datacenter view and guest view

- alt-gr button not working at all with all my vm's with proxmox java console
- vm's pfsense, ubuntu 11.10, debian squeeze, ubuntu server 10.04 and 12.04


Client:

ubuntu 12.10 fr / sun jre 6 / keyboard fr / proxmox console / firefox and chrome lastest (20/03/2013)
ubuntu 12.10 fr / keyboard fr / reminna vnc client / kvm_guest.conf args: -vnc 0.0.0.0:100 with no encryption, no password
ubuntu 12.10 fr / openjdk 6 / keyboard fr / proxmox console / chrome lastest (20/03/2013)
windows xp sp3 / sun jre 7 / keyboard fr / proxmox console / firefox and chrome lastest (20/03/2013)


- If i launch the live cd's source of these previously installed vm on the same proxmox host the alt-gr key work !
- On the ubuntu server 10.04 dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration and dpkg-reconfigure console-setup change nothing..


note

- kvm version has changed from a major release to another one.


My question: Does the kvm version upgrade change something with keyboard virtual harware that need a new detection method on guest ?

Thanks. This is nice.

Still problems with key combinations like:
- Shift+'key'+Space (Nordic keyboard char ^)
- Alt Gr+'key'+Space (Nordic keyboard char ~)
