Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 122961
Full screen keeps input on dual head display
Last modified: 2013-04-30 19:33:13 EDT
Description of problem:
I have a dual head X with "seperate desktops" meaning each screen has
its own panel, icons etc. In normal operation I can move the mouse
between the two screens.
When I go to fill screen mode in VNC, I can move the mouse over to the
sceen without the VNC viewer, but the input is fixed with VNC.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up a dual head X with seperate desktops
2. open vnc on one of the desktops and put it in full screen mode
moveing the mouse to the desktop without VNC doesn't release the input
When the mouse move to the second desktop the input should be moved
off of VNC.
To clarify: do you mean that when the mouse is on the non-VNC screen,
keys that you type are caught only by VNC?
Right. So for an explicit example. On the non-VNC screen I have
mozilla and a terminal open. I am doing work in the VNC screen and
then I move over to the non-VNC screen:
* in mozilla I can select from menus, use all the buttons, I can even
highlight text. However any typing will appear in the last window I
used on the VNC screen.
* in terminal I can clikc on a menu, but the menu doesn't appear. I
cannot select text. Any typing will appear in the last window I used
on the VNC screen.
please, could you try to reproduce this bug with latest version of vnc?? thank you
Sorry, I don't have this setup anymore.
