Description of problem:
Key repeat doesn't work on machine where a synergy client is running, but it works from the server.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.setup a synergy client and server so that one can type on the server with input redirected to the client and attach the client to the server
2.hold down a key on the server and see the key repeat
3.hold down a key on the client and notice it doesn't repeat
Actual Results: key repeat on the client doesn't work
Expected Results: key repeat should work
I am using a stock readhat gnome desktop
This seems like an upstream bug, probably not packaging related. Could you
please report it on synergy's sf.net tracker?
I'd be interested in knowing if this is fixed in 1.2.3.
Packages of 1.2.3 should be available in Extras real shortly.
Please let me know, as if I don't get more details, I'll probably close the bug
as "UPSTREAM" since this isn't a packaging issue in the first place.
The problem hasn't gone away as of the most recent update 1.2.3-1.fc4
I entered this upstream as bug 1251834 on sourceforge.net for the synergy project
Let me know if I can easily backport a patch from here when/if the problem gets
fixed. Do you mind if I close this bug as UPSTREAM now?
I guess you can close it. How do inform you when a patch appears?
You can just add a comment to this closed bug or send me a personal email directly.
Actually I just got a response to the bug I filed over at sourceforge: not a
bug. It has to work this way so that synergy client doesn't get in an endless
loop. Key repeat at the client keyboard repeats if one moves the synergy server
cursor back to the service desktop. FYI.
