Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 349021
bad vncviewer interaction with compiz
Last modified: 2013-04-30 19:37:12 EDT
Description of problem:
The reason I don't use compiz is that vncviewer no longer works correctly when
compiz is running. The thing that does not work is shift-clicking or
control-clicking, for instance when selecting multiple components or versions in
a Bugzilla web form.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Enable desktop effects
2.Run vncviewer to view a remote Linux desktop (e.g. Fedora 7)
3.In that VNC session, go to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla
4.Run a query for bugs against either 'compiz' or 'compiz-fusion' by clicking on
one of them and control-clicking on the other.
Control-clicking behaves as though the control key was not held down. The same
happens with shift-clicking.
As with a normal session.
Works when desktop effects is disabled.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
