[virtual machine manager] how to change my keyboard ?!


#1

Hello,

I run kvm on my laptop on fedora 10 and manage the VM (winXP sp3) with virtual manager.
My problem it is a could not change my keyboard configuration.
I tried do it in winXP parameter, that do nothing.
This only solution i found, this is when i run qemu-kvm command with the option ‘-k fr’ (for azerty).
But qemu-kvm is not a graphical vm manager, and do not give us information about vm’s performance.

My questions :
how to change my keyboard configuation on virtual manager ?!
Can i do it with an other solution or by modify kvm’s file configuration … ?!

Thanks for your answers.

I am not sure on where/how to set the default config, but for individual servers you can change their config files.
Example: for aVM named WinXP_SP3 you will have a config file named /etc/libvirt/qemu/WinXP_SP3.xml. (location could differ. This is where Debian Lenny keeps them)

Find: <graphics type='vnc' port='-1' autoport='yes' keymap='en-us'/>
Replace this with: <graphics type='vnc' port='-1' autoport='yes' keymap='fr'/>
