    Hello !

    I am using XRDP since a long time and know about some limitations
    but for the most use, it is very well to use.

    I have a new debian box wich is accessible trough xrdp.
    I can connect locally and via xrdp and I have always the right
    keyboard. Then, I install VirtualBox [via xrdp] and this looks
    ok too. In VB, I setup a new VM and install debian. I do this
    via xrdp.

    In the new VM, the keyboard is missing the right mappings. Although
    the host locally and via xrdp has the right keyboard, the VMs are
    missing the right settings. I use a german QUERTZ keyboard.
    It is not, that the umlauts are missing, but elsewhere mapped
    keys like "/" [is dead, but works from numeric block].

    If someone could explain, how this is possible at all, this
    would me made a little more wise ;-)

    I am mainly interested to understand this! What I do next,
    is install a VM from the console.

    Thanks anyway and
    best regards,
