vnc to ubuntu 10.4 with vmware guest keyboard problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 22, 2011
My '(' and ')', shift 9 and shift 0, keys do not function from within a vmware guest when I vnc into the ubuntu host. All other keys work.
I have an Ubuntu 10.4 desktop that hosts two vmware machines, one running ubuntu 10.4 and one running Windows 7. The desktop has an x11vncserver running. Both Ubuntu boxes use Gnome.
If I attach to the desktop via vnc, either UltraVnc from a Windows desktop or Remote Desktop Viewer from another Ubuntu box, the keys all work on the desktop host. I cannot type those two keys from within either vmware guest operating system. All other keys work in the guest operating systems.
VMware keyboard problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 30, 2008
I have a problem with my keyboard when using VMware Workstation 6.5.1 (I had the same problem with 6.5, but NOT with 6.0.5). The buttons are not working properly. For example, I have to press numpad 3 instead of down arrow, etc. And most of them don't even work. OS: Ubuntu Intrepid, fully updated. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Keyboard Problem During Linux Installations
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 11, 2012
Have a VERY old Dell box I want to renew with a Linux install (also as OS test drive for my new computer build). Downloaded, checked, burned, checked Puppy Linux 4.2.1, Linux Mint 10, Peppermint Two, and Kubuntu 11.10. All discs are fine.
Have set up BIOS to boot to CD/DVD before HDD.
I get to a spot, though, where the install freezes up. Based on my experience with Puppy, it's where the software is trying to detect my mouse and keyboard. Puppy recognizes my mouse correctly, but I can't hit "Enter" on keyboard because Puppy does not recognize the PS/2 keyboard I have. The other OSs freeze at a spot where the icon is on screen and the dots have been changing color, but suddenly the dots stop changing color and the install disc is not spinning.
I have tried a USB keyboard, thinking that might be the culprit. I have changed the BIOS to disable "Legacy USB" and then I reenabled it. Nothing.
Do I have the wrong distro releases? Do I need to reformat my HDD to do a fu
VMWARE Workstation 10 problem with Ubuntu 13.10 mouse and keyboard
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 10, 2013
I am evaluating VMware Workstation 10 versus Virtual Box. When I install Ubuntu 13.10 VM under VMware , the mouse and keyboard do not work.
I can make the keyboard work by enabling the VMmare option for an extended keyboard but the mouse will not function. I have to directly attach a mouse to the Ubuntu Virtual Machine via a modification to the VMware VM initialization parameters in order to have access to it..
Ideas on how I can resolve this or what I need to provide in order to fix it would be appreciated.

XP PRO Keyboard Problem in VMWARE Player
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 18, 2007
Totally new to Linux world, started in PC with DOS 3. I have a Gateway MX6445 laptop (MM Type wide screen). It came with XP Media Edition. I tried several flavors of Linux in VM Player and settled on ubuntu. I then installed 7.10 in a dual boot and since 7.10 found my wireless card and I was able to connect to me network, I took the big plunge and installed 7.10 again, this time wiping out everything MS on the machine and reformatting the HD. Now I'm trying to get XP PRO to run in VMWARE Player running in 7.10. I've been lucky, since I now have XP-PRO up and running, and I am able to use my wireless card in XP to get to my network and the Internet. My last problem is that XP-PRO thinks it's dealing with a normal keyboard and when I'm typing, the keys that are also the numpad on the laptop display numbers rather than letters. Hope that makes sense. My company has an enterprise license for XP-Pro so using virtual images isn't a legal issue, I just can't figure out how to "turn off&q

How to fix keyboard problem in vmware with Ubuntu 10.0.4 step by step
You may have not be able to log in to your freshly installed Ubuntu 10.0.4 in a vmware virtual machine because there is no keyboard input. This is how to fix it:
1. At the logon screen click the icon depicting a little man with stretched out arms inside a circle at the botton of the screen (its a very small icon).
2. A popup menu appears that says [Universal Access Preferences], click on it.
3. A window with several options appear. Select the top option which is [Use on-screen keyboard].
5. A white square might flash on the top right of your virtual screen, instead of the actual on screen keyboard. If this happens reboot the virtual machine by clicking on the on/off icon at the bottom right of the screen and then clicking [Restart], and the on-screen keyboard will come up normally upon reboot, otherwise "type" in your password using the mouse.
6. Once logged in go to Applications>Accessories>
