Description Josh Boyer 2005-11-28 12:56:49 EST
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):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install rawhide
2. Start a vncserver with gnome
3. Connect from another machine
Actual results:

Gnome panels are weird

Expected results:

Gnome looks normal

Additional info:

Here is a screenshot of what I'm referring to:

I've also seen this in vnc installations.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2005-11-28 13:07:46 EST
Paul: in any stable release, or only devel?
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2005-12-02 11:55:12 EST
Apparently this is fixed in 4.1.1-26.
Comment 4 Josh Boyer 2005-12-02 16:04:17 EST
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.
