I'm trying to run LKL (Linux Keyboard Logger) in a Ubuntu 9.04 VirtualBox VM (VirtualBox 2.2.2 running on a XP host). The package installs fine, but when I try to run it

lkl -l -k /usr/share/lkl/keymaps/us_km -o ./kbd.log &

it hogs the CPU usage to 50% and never logs a keystroke (in fact the kbd.log file is never created)

Any clues?

Try logkeys instead. It is newer and better than lkl, and should support your system as well.
