Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 437159
Modifier keys not working in virt-viewer
Last modified: 2008-03-12 14:56:31 EDT
Description of problem:
Running RHEL 5.2 pre-beta and the guest viewer window has issue.
When logged in and with a terminal window running I cannot
type uppercase characters (shift is not working). The ctrl
modifier is also not fnuctioning. They may work occasionally,
but mostly don't
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fire up a guest, login to the console, start a
terminal window and try entering shifted characters.
No shifter characters appear, sometimes multiple lower
case ones do.
What you type is what you get!
Flagging as a regression as the default viewer in RHEL 5.1 did not
behave this way.
Sometimes by playing with mouse focus I can get shifted characters to echo. But
I still got extra lowercase versiond echoed too.
