Description Brian G. Anderson 2004-05-10 18:47:21 UTC
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):

How reproducible:

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
Actual results:
moveing the mouse to the desktop without VNC doesn't release the input
from VNC.

Expected results:
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?

Comment 2 Brian G. Anderson 2004-05-14 18:48:22 UTC
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.
