Keyboard Problem in VMWare

This is a continue from my 19 Feb 2009 blog.

A day after I installed VMWare on my newly installed Felicia, I found out that there is a problem with the keyboard, especially almost all of the buttons on the right side of the keyboard, such as arrow buttons, PgUp, PgDn, Home, End, etc.

After googling a while in the Linux Mint forum I found the same question from another user. The answer in the forum refers to another page. This is the answer:

echo ‘xkeymap.nokeycodeMap = true’ > ~/.vmware/config

After I followed the instruction, my keyboard problem in VMWare are gone. Yes! 🙂 According to the referred page, this problem happened because of Ubuntu 8.10, which Felicia derivatives from.

Anyway my problem has been solved. Thanks to VictorWarner (LinuxMint forum) and Nalin ( for sharing the information.
