Re: [Xen-users] Bugs in VNC viewer ? Mouse offset and keyboard map incorrect

Yeah, that's pretty common in my experience. It's because the client
uses its own cursor acceleration.

Probably an issue between different keymaps on the VNC client and
server. Maybe you can set a keymap on your vnc client? I use remmina
as a vnc client (wrapper), and am able to choose different clients. I
use the dvorak layout, so I have set my VNC client to dvorak as well.
But on the guest VM I still have to set it to the US layout.
Probably because the client sends key codes, not characters, to the
VNC server.
