I've been using qemu/kqemu in a linux host - very nice work folks,
I'm just having a little keyboard problem. Unfortunately, if I don't choose a
keyboard layout ("-k pt-br"), the key "/" and "?" is not recognized either in
Linux or Windows (its a Brazilian ABNT2 keyboard).
However, when I choose a keyboard map ("-k en-us", for example), the ESC key
does not work.
Is anyone having the same problem?
PS: Just a side note, some time ago, there was a similar little bug in kbd,
after compiling dri - open source video acceleration drivers - from sources,
by which certain keys - especially this "/" and "?" key was not recognized; I
noticed the problem after installing a dri video driver from source, and
solved it through the quick & dirty solution I described here:
More comments about it here:
Considering that according to information contained in qemu source files
related to the keyboard layouts, same are based on kbd, and as it seems some
information may have come from Red Hat 7 or 9.0
(http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/qemu/qemu-doc.html#TOC42), which uses xfree86
(which dri also used at the time), there may be some connection between the
problems and the solution to this little annoyance in qemu may be related
(not sure how the keymaps are used in qemu though)...
Another note is that there was no such problem after dri moved to xorg (and
its kbd version). Don't know if this has been solved in later xfree86
Anyway, best regards and congratulations for the excellent work!
