Description Nicholas Patrick (Peter) Solin Jr. 2010-11-21 17:22:37 EST
Created attachment 461881 [details] Screenshot of a VNC connection. Description of problem: I tried to use vino, x11vnc, and tigervnc to view my desktop on a 1680x1050 resolution, none of them worked. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): vino-2.28.2-1.fc13 x11vnc-0.9.8-14.fc13 tigervnc-server-1.0.90-0.15.20100420svn4030.fc13 How reproducible: Reproducible so long as the user has a monitor to support a large enough resolution. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set the resolution higher than 1440x900. 2. Install and run a VNC server. 3. Connect to the VNC server from another computer. Actual results: The screen displays complete static/gibberish. The mouse can still click objects but the user has no idea which object is which. Expected results: The screen should display without the corruption. Additional info: May have a relation to bug 653270.
Comment 1 Nicholas Patrick (Peter) Solin Jr. 2010-11-23 16:46:32 EST
Why was this changed to tigervnc? I only tested it on tigervnc once, and have tested it on vino and x11vnc a plethora of times (with vino much higher still than x11vnc). This bug applies to VNC servers as a whole, not a single VNC server.

Because tigervnc is what we ship. The 'vnc' component is a legacy component from much older Fedora releases.

Ah, thank you. Sorry for the trouble then.
Comment 4 Adam Tkac 2011-04-12 08:10:25 EDT
This is a bug in the Windows viewer, not in the TigerVNC server. Upstream report: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2873675&group_id=254363&atid=1126848 Closing as notabug.
