Re: [Xen-devel] [RFC] keymap support for PVFB

Hmm, so this works by telling the vnc server side which keymap the
client is using I guess?

I've tried to tackle the same issue by hacking the vnc client side to
send us keysyms no matter what the local keyboard mapping is.  So I can
have any keyboard map loaded on the host, qemu-dm/vncfb sees us keysyms
nevertheless and passes the correct scancodes to the guest OS.

Problem with that is that I don't have keysyms to send for keys which
are not present on a us keyboard.  That affects the 102th/105th key on
i18n keyboards ("<>|" key on a german keyboard), and I think japanese
keyboards have a few more keys which are just dead ...
