    I have a brazilian abnt keyboard configured on both, a host Mandriva Linux 2006 and the guest OS/2 Warp 4. Keycode 211 (slash) and question/degree key combinations is not mapped to OS/2 guest. This same configuration works correctly when the host used is WinXP.

    Is it abug? Any workaround,other to use ALT + 47 etc.? I am using KDE.

    Hi,

    My evaluation period will finish in a few days and I would like to know if this bug of "slash/question/degree" key is planned to be fixed in the next version of Parallels. My aim is Linux as host, not WinXP, so this point is essential for my decision to buy or not a license.

    Thanks in advance

    What is happening when you press that key ? Is there any console output ?

    (to see console output you can run Parallels from your terminal)

    Hi,
    The output are the last two lines....

    QMultiInputContext::changeInputMethod(): index=0, slave=xim
    QMultiInputContext::changeInputMethod(): index=0, slave=xim
    QMultiInputContext::changeInputMethod(): index=0, slave=xim
    QMultiInputContext::changeInputMethod(): index=0, slave=xim
    Unknown (or uncoded) keycode 0xd3(211)
    Unknown (or uncoded) keycode 0xd3(211)


    The host is a Mandriva Linux 2006
    Linux version 2.6.12-12mdk (apatard@n1.mandriva.com) (gcc version 4.0.1 (4.0.1-5mdk for Mandriva Linux release 2006.0)) #1 Fri Sep 9 18:15:22 CEST 2005

    not too different from Mandrake 10

    Aha. That's fine. We'll put that keycode into recoding tables inside VM, may be we miss it long time ago...

    With numeric keypad I found only one problem. The "dot" key (between plus and Enter) is not mapped. See console message...

    [rsenger@wks5 ~]$ parallels

    In Mandriva this is done by the last line below in the file /etc/X11/xkb/keycodes/xfree86

    // For brazilian ABNT2 keyboard. by Ricardo Y. Igarashi(iga@that.com.br)
    xkb_keycodes "abnt2" {
    include "xfree86(basic)"
    <BKSL> = 94;
    <AC12> = 51;
    <KPPT> = 134; :)
