VMware cursor, etc. key misbehavior under Linux/Ubuntu Intrepid (8.10)

Cursor (arrow) keys acting like the Win key... and other strange key misbehavior caused by inappropriate key mapping? The following solved this problem for me:
echo 'xkeymap.nokeycodeMap = true' > ~/.vmware/config

resp.
echo 'xkeymap.nokeycodeMap = true' >> ~/.vmware/config

if ~/.vmware/config already exists (a new line will be appended)

  5. Thanks, that worked great.

    I'd recommend to always use the second command, because it will also work when the file does not exist. :)
