Bug Description

I am using anbox-cloud-appliance on AWS and is spinning containers up where i need to write small sections in the app running the container. However I run into issues when send the keystroke "'" to the container. This is both through the anbox streaming sdk and the dashboard.

For info: I am using a keyboard with nordic layout. If I log the input of the keystroke I get that the key pressed is called "Quote" which seems not to be mapped in the anbox streaming sdk.

This is also the only keystroke not working, which I find a bit wierd

Thanks for reporting!

This looks like we miss the particular keystroke somewhere in the code and don't handle it currently. I am going to put this on the list of things to be inestigated.

Thanks for the fix.
When will you update the stream SDK so that the keybinding can be used ?

Sorry for the late reply.

The Anbox Streaming SDK was just updated to 1.17.1 on the github. You can find that at the following link

1. In order to get the keybinding work, you not only need to update the streaming SDK for your client, but also ensure the latest version of the target application uses the 1.17.1-based image. To check if the 1.17.1 image is used by the latest application version:
   $ amc application show <app_name> # find the image name of the latest app version
   $ amc image show <image_name> | grep remote_id # check if the result matches 1.17.1

2. The latest Anbox Cloud dashboard doesn't come with this fix. As planned, it will be included in the 1.17.2 release. Therefore the keybinding won't work either if you launch a session from the dashboard even if the application is built on top of the 1.17.1-based image.

Please let us know if it helps.
