gnome panels look odd in vnc on rs/6000
Last modified: 2013-04-30 19:33:15 EDT
Description of problem:
Running gnome in a pure vnc session on my RS/6000 produces strange results. The
panels are "blacked-out". I switched themes twice and it got better, but the
"blank" parts of the panel are still funky.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install rawhide
2. Start a vncserver with gnome
3. Connect from another machine
Gnome panels are weird
Gnome looks normal
Here is a screenshot of what I'm referring to:
I've also seen this in vnc installations.
Paul: in any stable release, or only devel?
Apparently this is fixed in 4.1.1-26.
Sorry, my comment in IRC about "vnc-server works again, minus the weird
gnome-panel bug" meant that vnc-server starts with 4.1.1-26 but still has this
problem. Version 4.1.1-24 didn't even start. My apologies for the confusion.
