I have a Ubuntu guest running on my Windows 7 host. I then wanted to connect remotely from my Macbook Air in bed, and so accessed the VM via Microsoft's OSX remote desktop client. I'm able to successfully connect to the Ubuntu guest VM, however my Macbook Air's arrow keys output numbers when pressed making it impossible to navigate with them (a big problem for coding).
Additionally, the touchpad is hyper-sensitive when using two fingers to scroll on the page.
I found a random forum post suggesting to turn off Numlock on the Windows host machine which I did, however nothing changed (even after rebooting the VM and reconnecting).
How can I fix the arrow keys so they function as arrow keys?
