[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: x2goserver

I have x2goserver installed on Centos 6.5 - Linux 2.6.32-431.5.1.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I have the Mac OS X client: Version: X2Go Client V. (Qt - 4.8.5) running on OS X 10.9.2
When I connect, the GNOME Desktop comes up perfectly, however when I attempt to use the Mac Keyboard, I am presented with extended key-code characters.
For example: QWERTYUIOP comes out as: \u0152\u2211\u2020¥\u03a0Ç - this has been cut-n-paste from the "terminal" window.
As you can imagine this makes x2go unusable.
I have connected via a Linux client (Fedora 20) and this works without issue, so it appears to be a Mac Keyboard mapping issue.
