Description Thomas J. Baker 2006-02-28 15:46:34 EST
Description of problem:

When vncviewing an fc4 or fc5 vino session, I can't type any control keys. They
just go through as their uncontrolled counterparts. Like ctrl-a will be just a.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.vncview to a vino desktop
2.try to type a ctrl key
Actual results:
no ctrl key passed

Expected results:
ctrl key passed

Additional info:
I thought it may be a vino problem but it happens connecting with both fc4 and
fc5 vino servers and I know fc4 to fc4 used to work.

I just verified with ubuntu that it's not vino. They use xvncviewer and it send
the control characters fine.

Do you have in Desktop->Preferences->Mouse in Cursors tab checked "locate
pointer" checkbox? I think this bug is duplicate of bug #188169
Comment 4 Jitka Kozana 2006-07-14 07:01:36 EDT
This bug does not seem to appear when using KDE.
If you use GNOME, do you have checked the checkbox, which was described above 
in comment #3?
Comment 5 Thomas J. Baker 2006-07-14 08:01:27 EDT
Yes I did. When I unchecked it, things worked as expected. 
Comment 6 Jitka Kozana 2006-07-17 03:59:59 EDT
Ok, then this bug is indeed duplicate of a bug #188169.
