I am new to VMware. I am running VMware on Windows 7 and my virtual machine is running Ubuntu 10.04 server edition. Ubuntu shell responds to the down key as it would to the right arrow key and does not seem to react to the other keys. I am testing this in aptitude, where I can't browse my packages effectively.
Host hardware is a Dell Vostro 3300
running Windows 7 x64
2.53GHz x2 Intel Core i5 460M (Arrandale)
NVIDIA GeForce 310M
Intel(R) HD Graphics
