I setup a VNC server on Ubuntu 14.04 following instructions from the HowTo of this site. I thought everything was ok in that I could login, see the desktop, etc. But when I tried to open a terminal and input something I found that the window did not accept any keyboard input. The more I checked the more I found that it was if the keyboard was disconnected. Everything that did not require keyboard input worked but nothing with keyboard. I'm assuming this is a configuration issue or something that I missed during setup hence I'm logging this here. Also, I notice that the same behaviour happens on X2go server/client for whatever that's worth. In both cases I'm accessing the server from windows clients.
