SSGD Mac OS10.5 no key input possible

Today one of our customers stated that on their Mac clients the keyboard input was not passed to the applications provided by Sun Secure Global Desktop. They have searched the internet for a solution, but it is hard to find the simple fix.

Since MacOS 10.5.1 the location of the file XKeysymDB has been changed. When creating a symbolic link for this file in the 'old' location resolved the issue mentioned above.

ln -s /usr/X11/share/X11/XKeysymDB /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XKeysymDB

Hopefully this post will make it easier to find this little fix.
