Recompile the file:

# python /usr/lib/python2.5/compileall.py /usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/

Restart libvirtd:

# service libvirtd restart

Stop the virtual machine:

# virsh shutdown [Domain]

Redefine it:

# virsh define <(virsh dumpxml [Domain] |
  sed "/vnc/s/\(\/>\)/keymap='pt-br'\1/"

To get ',' (comma) key working on guest, the 'NumLock' key need to be pressed
three times.

Hi, this has been upstream for a bit actually:


It is in virt-manager 0.5.3, which is in F7 and F8. Closing this as CURRENTRELEASE.
