Could you tell me which client are you using, please? Also run vnc server with "-log *:stderr:100" parameter and attach log from the server, please (if you run, for example, "vncserver :3 -log *:stderr:100" then log is located in $HOME/.vnc/*:5.log file)

Log File of VineServer

There is no useful information in the server log file, because it's a mac.

Client is tigervnc-0.0.90-0.5.20090403svn3751.fc11.i586
Server is VineServer 3.0 (MacOS X)

VNC Viewer (vnc-4.1.3-1.fc10.i386) has no problem with the Server.
Comment 4 Steve 2009-05-07 08:38:50 EDT
If you disable "Render cursor locally", you will see only a dot, but the mouse is working.
Comment 5 Steve 2009-05-19 12:58:42 EDT
Switching back to RealVNC (http://www.realvnc.com/) solves the problem temporary.
Comment 6 Steve 2009-05-24 05:06:18 EDT
No changes in tigervnc-0.0.90-0.10.fc11.i586.
Comment 7 Scott Robbins 2009-05-29 17:36:37 EDT
Same issue with x86_64 version.  No mouse available--using Steve's suggestion of unchecking Render cursor locally works as he described. 

In my case, I used tightvnc (rather than real) and that solves the problem.
Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 09:44:13 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 9 Scott Robbins 2009-06-13 18:26:49 EDT
The same problem exists in Fedora 12. I can reproduce it on a few different machines, running i386 and x86_64, whether running F11 or F12.
Comment 10 Scott Robbins 2009-06-14 01:00:02 EDT
This is apparently an upstream issue. I tried building it from source in Fedora and Ubuntu and had the same problem as with the RPM.
Comment 11 Adam Tkac 2009-06-18 08:40:29 EDT
Finally I got Mac machine so I've been able to reproduce this issue.
Comment 12 Fedora Update System 2009-06-22 08:46:39 EDT
tigervnc-0.0.91-0.11.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
Comment 13 Steve 2009-06-22 09:04:03 EDT
Yep, fixed for me, thx!
Comment 14 Scott Robbins 2009-06-22 10:41:37 EDT
Fixed it for me on an F11 x86_64 machine.  Thank you.
Comment 15 Scott Robbins 2009-06-22 19:28:29 EDT
Just for the heck of it, I tried the new F11 rpm on an F12 install.  The new  build installed without problem and fixed the problem there as well. 

Once again, many thanks.
Comment 16 Fedora Update System 2009-06-24 15:43:06 EDT
tigervnc-0.0.91-0.11.fc11 has been pushed to the Fedora 11 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
