I am running a Mac Mini OS X 10.4.9 (Tiger). I am using Windows keyboards because they are a dime a dozen.
I prefer to use the “Ctrl” button on the windows keyboard for the “Mac Command” button, as I am used to Ctrl+X,C,V for cut,copy,paste on all of my Windows boxes. I have been successful in switching this by either using DoubleCommand, or System Preferences->Keyboard&Mouse->Modifier Keys.
This works wonderfully as long as my keyboard is local to the Mac Mini. The problem I run into is when I try to use a remote keyboard through Vine Server 2.1. No matter what I change the keyboard mappings to, I cannot get the desired effect, and it appears that Vine Server is overriding my keyboard remapping. I have tried with both RealVNC and TightVNC, both with the same issue.
Any ideas why this might be, and how this can be corrected?
FYI: Vine Server seems to prefer the “Alt” key as the “Mac Command” key.
