    Fixing MS in VMware keyboard mappings

    When using VMware (host: Linux, guest XP), keyboard mapping are not correct.

    To fix, modify the VMware configuration file, by adding the following directive:

    xkeymap.nokeycodeMap = true

    Add it to the configuration file relevant to your product. If you have VMware server - it's /etc/vmware-server-console/conf.

    For you have Workstation or Player, it's /etc/vmware/config.

    It's been reported (see: that the local file, in ~/.vmware/config can be used for the purpose (not tested by me either).
