    Default Forward keyboard shortcuts to remote session

    Hello Everyone

    I am using OpenSUSE 12.3 with XFCE DE. Sometimes I connect to windows through tsclient (rdesktop) . I want the local keyboard shortcuts work even when I use rdp session in full screen mode. Is it possible to forward the keyboard shortcuts to rdp session.

    Normally,
    Keyboard shortcuts are re-mapped (so that they are unique for the remote User, the original shortcut would most likely be interpreted to be executed locally).

    For that reason, the re-mapping would be unique to the client app you're using.
    Oftentimes, you'll find Desktop shortcuts often are available as a dropdown option, sometimes support custom re-mapping to your own desires.

    So, start with the documentation for your client app.

    Try using Remmina instead - you can press right CTRL and then the local
    shortcuts are forwarded.

    It may be that those tools won't do it. Maybe they do, I don't know -
    but I'm telling you about the solution that I use that *does* work.
