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 (NalinMakar.com) for sharing the information.
