Keys in linux don't get sent properly

I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 with Anydesk 2.1.1-1 and when I connect to a Windows 7 computer keys don't pass through correctly. For instance the "z" key shows up as "y". This happens on 2 different devices i use, both Ubuntu 14.04 to Windows 7.

        Hello,
        I am running Linux Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on one PC and want to take remote connection from my Windows 7 PC.
        When I am entering single character/key (ex: a), in linux I am seeing two characters there (eg: aa)
        What could be the problem ?
        This problem happens on that Linux Ubunut 16.04 when I do anydesk remote connection.

        I also encounter key-translation problem coming from a Ubuntu machine.
        1. When connecting to Windows Server and then opening RDP to a 3rd machine the right Shift key doesn't work. The left ones does. This is only though in the RDP session. Ubuntu to Server works fine.

        2. When switching windows in Ubuntu with Alt+Tab oder Super+W (only Super/Windows key) I can not type normal letters in my Anydesk session. I have seen "foreign" letters and certain menus popping up (maybe ctrl+"x") shortcuts.

        Same issue.

        Client: Win7 Enterprise 64bit
        Virtual platform: VMWare Workstation 12 and VMWare ESXi 6
        Guest OS: Debian 8 32 and 64bit

        Also other keymappings change places, - gets remapped to where [ should be (US Kbd) etc.

        It's a QWERTZ mapping, but doesn't look like standard German kb to me, ü should be after p (i.e. where - is now mapped). Also other umlaut characters are missing. Not that that's important, just an observation :)

        I think that for the linux distribution the anydesk team are using a German Keyboard layout
