We had an issue with a french customer that has an "azerty" layout. If we use the "server-layout" and set the "fr-fr-azerty" value everything works. After a customer said that he has multiple server layouts (some of them are "fr-fr-azerty" and some of them are "en-us-qwerty") we tried the "failsafe" option. It worked, to whatever keyboard layout his server has.
*"Unknown keyboard - this option sends only Unicode events and should work for any keyboard, though not necessarily all RDP servers or applications. If your server's keyboard layout is not yet supported, this option should work in the meantime."*
Let's say all the servers in my scenario are windows servers.
Is there a downside to use "failsafe" as the default option? Why isn't it a default in guacamole config?
Thank you so much, Hope you will have the time to reply :)
