Description Noel J. Bergman 2008-11-11 20:43:04 EST
Description of problem:

Vinagre incorrectly captures keys, e.g., ^d, that should be going to the remote system.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to remote system
2. Open shell
3. Hit ^d.

Or just trying using emacs.
Actual results:

Vinagre pops up a dialog, captures the local keyboard such that you cannot even type in another window, and expects for you to label the bookmark.

Expected results:

The remote system should receive the keystroke.
Comment 1 Noel J. Bergman 2008-11-11 22:31:01 EST
From reading the code, I have found a workaround.  Run gconf-editor, and change apps->vinagre->show_accels to false.  That setting is described by gconf-editor as "Set to "false" to disable menu shortcuts. Set to "true" to enable them. Note that if they are enabled, those keys will be intercepted by the menu and will not be sent to the remote host."  Needless to say, having that value default to true is a very poor choice given the nature of the program.  And new users are not likely to find that hidden switch without instructions.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

FYI. Still present in F10.

Just noticed the previous GNOME BZ#.
Please ignore my second report.

This is fixed in vinagre in F11. The work-around above will work for F10.
