Problems with keyboard in FreeBSD installation as VM


Jun 20, 2019

I've got into the problem with keyboard on my PVE 5.4 when I try to install FreeBSD 12.0 as Guest VM: in noVNC console left&right arrow keys do not work, down arrow key works as "Enter". In PVE 5.1 there was no such problem. I've noticed that novnc-pve package version differs in 5.4 and 5.1: 1.0.0-3 vs. 0.6-4.

In the PVE node's shell everything works fine. Problem is present only in noVNC console.

My browser is Firefox 67.0.2 running on FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE.
Any help to figure out the root of an issue is kindly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
Cant confirm. Installed a FreeBSD 12 yesterday with 1.0.0-3 novnc, everything worked as expected. Maybe odd language settings?
