support dual keyboard setups with differing layouts
|Reported by:||sergio||Owned by:||sergio|
I have an issue that is probably rare and triggered by a weird system configuration.
This, running an ubuntu linux laptop and using xpra to access an ubuntu linux desktop with an almost identical configuration.
My laptop has an Italian keyboard. When I use xpra with the laptop alone, everything is fine. The Italian keyboard works ok.
Whenever I can, I use the laptop with an external big monitor and an external usb keyboard and mouse, for extra comfort. Since I dislike the Italian keyboard design (it misses many important keys), my external keyboard is US. Here my problems start.
When I connect to the remote machine, the keyboard is initially set to the Italian layout. This is no surprise, nomachine does the same. However, if I try to change the keyboard layout with setxkbdmap -layout us (which works perfectly with nomachine), under xpra the keyboard goes crazy: some keys becomes mute, other take weird settings...
