Description Bastien Nocera 2007-08-20 19:06:31 UTC
gtk-vnc-0.1.0-3.fc8 on x86_64 OXSVNC 1.71 on MacOS X 10.4.10 (iirc) The cursor doesn't show up on the screen, but highlights/tooltips show up where the cursor should be. Works fine with vncviewer.

Daniel, what changes would this need to vinagre to work?
Comment 2 Daniel Berrange 2007-08-26 19:32:16 UTC
I've been trying to figure out what's wrong here. The VNC server itself should always render a cursor. The client (viewer) may or may not render a cursor at its discretion, or it may negotiate with the server to render the server cursor locally. GTK-VNC doesn't support local rendering of the server cursor yet, so a well behaved server should always be rendering the cursor itself. My best guess at this time is that this is probably a bug in the OSX VNC server - expecting the client viewer program to always support the local cursor renderering extension. I think the best option for a quick workaround is to unhide the local cursor with vnc_display_set_point_local(vnc, TRUE). I need to to continue investigating just what the real cause is though because I'd really rather only have a server cursor visible (whether rendering locally or remotely). Will probably have to just implement the cursor extension to VNC.

Created attachment 182241 [details] Implement rich cursor extension Can you give this patch a try - it implenents the rich cursor offload extension which OSX-VNC seems to want.
Comment 4 Daniel Berrange 2007-08-31 02:08:08 UTC
Created attachment 182401 [details] Patch to add RichCursor + XCursor extensions This updated patch implements both the richcursor and xcursor extensions which should be enough for any server.
Comment 5 Daniel Berrange 2007-09-14 04:40:31 UTC
Release 0.2.0 pushed to rawhide, implementing both RichCursor & XCursor extensions
