           Summary: NX sessions from Windows nxclient get wrong keyboard
                    mapping
           Product: openSUSE 10.2
           Version: Final
          Platform: i586
        OS/Version: openSUSE 10.2
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P5 - None

Since upgrading to OpenSuSE 10.2 we found that people connecting to NX sessions
from the latest nxclient on Windows always got the default American keyboard
mapping instead of the appropriate local one (British, in our case).
I believe the problem is in nxagent, because the binary includes the string
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb which is a non-existent directory:

$ strings /usr/lib/NX/nxagent | grep X11/xkb
/usr/share/X11/xkb/X0-config.keyboard
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb

I have tested a workround, which is to set up a link
  /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb -> /usr/share/X11/xkb


We are running 
  filesystem-10.2-22
  NX-1.5.0-73 (32-bit version)
  xkeyboard-config-0.9-24
  nxclient for Windows 3.0.0.68 (from nomachine.com)

Note that connections from the Linux nxclient do not suffer from this problem.
