Is there a way to startup the Linux Oracle Virtual Desktop Client (OVDC) with Keyboard Capture enabled on both screens in a dual screen configuration?

What is Keyboard Capture feature:

  • Captures any local keyboard shortcuts entered by the user.

For example, on Windows client platforms the Alt + Tab keyboard shortcut switches between programs on the client computer.
Enabling this option means you can use the keyboard shortcut in the remote session.

  • Full screen mode only.
  • This option is not available on Mac OS X client platforms.


An example of this needed configuration would be in an environment where a customer wants to use the Linux OVDC as alternative to Physical Sun Ray clients e.g Sun Ray 3+ to connect to Windows sessions. To have the Windows session see the Windows key, the Keyboard Capture function needs to be enabled.
