Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 207960
rdesktop translucent with compiz enabled
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:44 EST
Description of problem:
when desktop-effects are enabled (compiz) the rdesktop - for non-default
colormaps (16 or 24 bit) - becomes translucent
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. System -> Preferences -> More Preferences -> Desktop Effects
2. Enable Desktop Effects
3. Run rdesktop -a16 or -a24
4. Note translucent window... makes remote desktop very difficult to view.
entire remote desktop is presented translucent
should be opaque.
This is fixed in rdesktop 1.5. I guess this will be release as an update soon
I have just upgraded from FC 5 to FC6 and rdesktop has had similar issues to
those detailed above. Installing rdesktop 1.5 has fixed these issues for me.
An update d rdesktop package for FC6 would be much appreciated :)
Confirmed that version 1.5.0 fixes the problem.
Downloaded the source rpm from the fedora repo.
Downloaded latest tarball from the rdesktop site.
changed the versions in the spec. . .
built without problem, upgraded cleanly, and fixed the issue! This is why I
love open source.
Now I need to find some cute child to make puppy dog eyes at the maintainer till
they get it into the updates repo.
