I have a Macbook Pro 7.1 with a French keyboard. I'm trying to install a Debian 6 guest OS using VirtualBox on it and I can't configure the keyboard as it is in OS X.
dpkg-reconfigure console-data and selected the
mac-usb-fr layout. Everything works well... besides the special characters (pound and arobase signs for example - first key under Esc).
When I select the Apple Macintosh Int'l layout using the keyboard settings in Gnome, I get an error dialog.
I also tried to edit /etc/default/console-setup and add these lines:
XKBMODEL="pc105" XKBLAYOUT="fr" XKBVARIANT="mac" XKBOPTIONS="lv3:switch,compose:lwin"
And these in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Driver "kbd" Option "CoreKeyboard" Option "XkbRules" "xorg" Option "XkbVariant" "mac" Option "XkbModel" "pc105" Option "XkbLayout" "fr" Option "XkbOptions" "lv3:rwin_switch,apple:badmap"
Same error dialog when I reboot.
One surprising thing is that it works perfectly out of the box with Ubuntu, so I guess the problem has been solved. Maybe I am missing a specific package?
