Has anyone seen this before? And the same thing happened, no keystrokes. In my application this is what it was intended for anyway, so further work wasn't needed. Go to the Options tab and select General. Hold down Ctrl+Alt as you press and release the spacebar, and continue to hold the Ctrl+Alt keys down as you press the next key in the combination.

If you're doing ssh to the box and getting a command line prompt, then your problem is the emulation doesn't know what kind of keyboard to map to.

If you need to use such a combination - for example, use Ctrl-Alt- to switch between Linux workspaces in a virtual machine - press Ctrl-Alt-Space, release Space without releasing Ctrl and Alt, then press the third key of the key combination you want to send to the guest.
