VirtualBox Hack – How to Make Capture Host Key and Keyboards Work Seamlessly with Windows!

Recently, I’ve installed Ubuntu over VirtualBox on my Windows 7 computer because I love using Linux command prompt and SSH, which something can’t be done on Windows 7.  You can go into SSH shell but you can’t do anything like transferring files natively to Windows 7 file system.

Well, i ran into a problem of the capture host key not working properly.  I found out it was because I have a Korean keyboard setup on my Windows 7.

Here’s an easy way to get around it, install scim-bridge-client-qt like this:

sudo apt-get install scim-bridge-client-qt

Now, I don’t even have to use the capture key, I can move freely between Windows 7 and Ubuntu, yey!
