Keys |\ and <> are inverted

HP Recommended
macOS 10.13 High Sierra

Hi,

i use a macbook to control a remote workstation with windows.

The two keys that you see in the photo attached, are inverted. 

I tried to write on Notepad on the workstation from my macbook and when i press |\ button, on the monitor appears \ and when i press <> button on the monitor appears \.

 

I use these keys as shortcuts in Avid, so it's important when i press it on macbook, it will execute the same command on windows in remote.

 

How can i solve the problem?

Thanks

Hi Peppens1,

 

What version of RGS are you using?

Another user had a similar problem on RGS  7.x and upgrading to the latest Remote Boost version solved their problem.

You can download the latest version here: https://www8.hp.com/us/en/workstations/zcentral-remote-boost.html

 

Meanwhile, assuming that both your sender and receiver have the same language and keyboard layout set, one thing that you could try is adding a property on your config file that makes RGS use a legacy keyboard mapping mode:

Rgreceiver.KeyboardMapMode=1

I use this 

ZCentral_RB_2020.0_MacOS_Receiver

 

Yes, same language (sender and receiver).

Where can i set the string? 

Config file, ok, but on the receiver or sender?

 

Where is (in the receiver) on macOS?

Hi there.

 

Your receiver config file should be located at /Library/Application Support/HP/rgreceiverconfig

 

1.Close the receiver

2.edit the rgreceiverconfig file

3. add the property Rgreceiver.KeyboardMapMode=1 

4. Save it, and restart the Receiver

Hi!

 

I have the same keyboard issue. It's exactly those two keys that are swapped. It's a German keyboard on a Macbook Air running MacOS 10.14 connected to a Centos 7 Linux box though.

In addition to this, the curly brackets { } are not transmitted on the same keys. On Mac it's right option + 8 and 9 but when connected to the Linux box I have to press right option + 7 and 0 (which I think is what I would have to press on the German keyboard at the Linux box but can't verify this right now).

 

The config option has helped at first glance. < and > work. But whenever I press the key to the left of the "1" (^ and ° on this German keyboard) the receiver disconnects after a brief "network warning". This also happens whenever I press the right option key. 

 

I have removed the option and everything "works" again, except for the swapped keys. But I can work with that for now.

 

Regards

Stefan

Peppens,

 

Does the picture you shared reflect the exact keyboard layout you have?

Could you tell me:

- What MacBook model/year do you have

- What language is its keyboard, and if it is localized to another language

- Keyboard layout if different from the picture (qwerty / qwertz, azerty, other?)

- Your sender keyboard language / layout

 

 

p.s. Tiltx, please let me know the same info about your systems too.

Hi Lizzy,

 

my system is:

  • Macbook Air 13 inch, 2018
  • OSX 10.14 Mojave
  • Keyboard is a German qwertz (see screenshot of layout) and input language is set to German (Deutsch) as well
  • The sender is on Centos 7, keyboard language is set to "de"

german-mac-keyboard-layout-keyshorts_b0c47719-3cd8-4e00-835c-a87876e7bdc1_1024x1024.png

 

These are a few keys I've noticed that don't translate correctly:

  • right option + 7: | on Mac but { shows up on remote desktop
  • right option + 8: { on Mac but [ shows up
  • right option + 9: } on Mac but ] shows up
  • right option + 0: ≠ on Mac (never used that one myself), but on remote it shows up as }

The keys that show up on the remote host are those that would appear on a "normal" non-Mac German keyboard connected to that machine. But they don't match the Mac keyboard.

 

cheers
