Enabling Arrow Keys in VMware Server 2.0.1

While running Ubuntu 9.10 RC in a virtual machine from a VMware Server instance, I remembered about the arrow keys and others that didn’t work quite well in the VMware Server’s console. The fix is pretty simple: edit the /etc/vmware/config file or the /etc/vmware-server-console/config file and add the following entry at the end:

    xkeymap.nokeycodeMap = true

Restart the console and everything will work as expected. There is no need to restart the server. Enjoy!
