    Default FREENX server and NX client - Bad keyboard behaviour in Kate - OS 12.3

    Hello.

    On the client side (nxclient) while editing with kate a file on server side, up-down-left-right key does not work (down arrow insert a new ligne); insert-supr key does not work ( supr key call Ksnapshot ); pgup-pgdown does not work.

    Any idea to correct that problem ?
    Thanks for helping. JCD

    Sorry, my standard answer to these question, have you [Alt]+[Tab] away from NX client and maybe server didn't receive the release of [Alt]-key. In NX client window press and release one after the other [Alt], [Shift], [Ctrl], [Alt Gr], [Meta (Windows)] and Maybe [Fn]. Can that help?

    On client side :
    Code:
    LINUX-TEST-123:~ # setxkbmap -print
    Couldn't interpret _XKB_RULES_NAMES property
    Use defaults: rules - 'base' model - 'pc105' layout - 'us'
    xkb_keymap {
            xkb_keycodes  { include "xfree86+aliases(qwerty)"       };
            xkb_types     { include "complete"      };
            xkb_compat    { include "complete"      };
            xkb_symbols   { include "pc+us+inet(pc105)"     };
            xkb_geometry  { include "pc(pc105)"     };
    };
    LINUX-TEST-123:~ #
    On server side :
    Code:
    LINUX-TEST-123:~ # setxkbmap -print
    xkb_keymap {
            xkb_keycodes  { include "evdev+aliases(azerty)" };
            xkb_types     { include "complete"      };
            xkb_compat    { include "complete"      };
            xkb_symbols   { include "pc+fr+us:2+inet(evdev)+terminate(ctrl_alt_bksp)+capslock(capslock)"    };

    Thumbs up Re: FREENX server and NX client - Bad keyboard behaviour in Kate - OS 12.3

    After googleing night and day I found the solution on internet : 0006298: x11 keyboard configuration not working for NX connections after update from 6.3 to 6.4 - CentOS Bug Tracker

    Have downgrade to
    xkeyboard-config-2.5.1-3.2.6.noarch and this solves the issue for me

    This is supposed to be a bug fom NOMACHINE ( nxclient )

    https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=50553 [^]

    CentOS 6.4 has xkeyboard-config-2.6-6.el6. It was 2.3-1.el6 in 6.3. A quote from the above link:

    The XKB configuration for 2.6.0 is TOTALLY broken. It means for some reason FreeNX cannot configure XKB, fails and the resulting config is useless. Anything in FreeFX logs? Now, the only thing I can offer is trying to analyse the differences between 2.5.1 and 2.6.0 and trying to find which commit causes the trouble.

    But, regardless of issues with xkeyboard-config, there is clearly a bug in FreeNX - it cannot handle properly new xk-c that is correct from "usual" X server POV. Or, at least it should provide some sensible error.

    Confirmed, my issue is being caused by xkeyboard-config-2.6-6.el6.noarch from CentOS-6.4

    Forcing a downgrade of this package to xkeyboard-config-2.3-1.el6.noarch from CentOS-6.3 solves the issue for me.
