virtual box keyboard host key
Hi This all started with a virtual machine of Ubuntu 12.04.
i do not like the Unity desktop so want to return to Gnome. i have found ways to do this which involve a Terminal and commands.
the problem is i cannot start a Terminal in 12.04. the only way i see is the keyboard short cut cntl+alt+t. this does not work on any virtual machine. articles say that the cntl+alt is not passed to the VM so use the host key +t ?? other documentation say the if the keyboard is captured the cntl+alt is passed to the VM. what ever i cannot start a Terminal?? my host key was set to right-cntl and would not surrender my mouse?? some how?? i changed it to left-shift and that does surrender my mouse.???? now am really confused.
thanks for any help ken
