How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use a french keyboard
2. Create a VM with "kvm-qemu"
3. try to type "Euro sign" or any letter composed with altgr key ('#', '|', ...) 
  
Actual results:
1. Keys are typed as the altgr key wasn't pressed

Expected results:
Right keys should have been typed

Same issue hits me, too, with a German keyboard at the host. Looks like this is related to the native VNC client, which as afaik same problems in Linux.
Comment 6 Peter Bieringer 2009-05-25 17:28:40 EDT
Just note that after upgrading to F11 and libvirt-0.6.2-11.fc11, AltGr works as expected on the virtual console at least with German keyboard layout.
Comment 7 Mathieu MILLET 2009-07-09 09:18:44 EDT
Right.

Corrected with F11. ==> Closed
