vncviewer -fullscreen does not kbd input under KDE
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:33:14 EDT
Description of Problem:
When I run "vnc -fullscreen" from under KDE, the VNC would not get keyboard
input (mouse still works fine).
- Under KDE - always. In particular, all four possible settings of window
focus behaviour produce the same result.
- Under Gnome this problem does not occur.
- If I first start vncviewer in a window and than go to fullscreen mode
using the menu (through F8), the problem does not occur.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a KDE session
2. Start a VNC session
3. Start a vncviwer -fullscreen under your KDE session
All keyboard input goes to the window that used to have focus before
vncviewer was started, even though the mouse works fine.
Both mouse and keyboard events go to vncviwer
In case it matters, I am running XFree v4 with a XkbLayout "ru"
(actually, a modification of "ru").
I see this too, about 50% of the time. At first glance, this looks like a
I still see this with 7.2, 100% of the time. Pretty annoying...
Dup of bug 63853?
I think so.
