Using an Apple Keyboard on Virtualised Ubuntu

When running Ubuntu via Parallels on my new Macbook Pro (yes, sigh, I have moved to the dark side), I’d like it to recognise the Apple keyboard (English – UK) I’m using. Here’s how:

  1. Run dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
  2. Select Apple Laptop
  3. Select English (UK)
  4. Select English (UK) Macintosh
  5. And take the defaults as presented there after.
