I'm working with ubuntu 12.04, in french, with belgian keyboard.

I'm also using xrdp 0.5.0-2.

I did

setxkbmap -layout be
sudo cp km-0409.ini km-0409.ini.bak    
sudo xrdp-genkeymap km-0409.ini

Using remote desktop connection under windows 7, the login screen seems ok. The keyboard is belgian. Alt-gr keys are working.

But in a terminal :

  • alt-gr keys are not working
  • arrows keys are not working
  • insert/home/pg up/pg donw/end/delete are not working
  • on the numeric keypad, / and enter are not working.

What can I do ?
