Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1251947
xvnc with sddm don't work
Last modified: 2016-01-12 02:56:33 EST
well, you can connect, see the display 0 login screen from SDDM but no mouse or keyboard action works - how is that possible at all because sddm is as well as kdm just a displaymanager *on top* of X11
to some degree it does not bother me who (tigervnc oder sddm) is resposible for that, the sddm maintainers don't care about bugreports at all (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1214786)
[root@srv-rhsoft:~]$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/02-vnc.conf
Option "SecurityTypes" "VncAuth"
Option "passwordFile" "/root/.vnc/passwd"
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 21 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 21. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 21 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
WTF - 4 months without any reaction?
I'm sorry, I didn't have time to check this yet. If you want to get answer/solution as soon as possible then the easiest way is to report your problem to upstream, because we (Fedora packagers) are sometimes just packagers and not upstream contributors.
I just tested it and it works perfectly for me, including mouse and keyboard.
in the meantime it seems to work *somehow* but far away from perfectly
enter a key - 3 secods after it appears in the username
maybe i just did not wait long enough and switched back to "kdm" which works in neraly realtime since the homeserver has a 250/25 Mbit line
