Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 506362
control- and shift-click do not work connecting to F11 Vino
Last modified: 2013-04-30 19:43:42 EDT
Description of problem:
When connecting with tigervnc to a vino remote desktop, control-click and shift-click do not appear to function. Example: selecting multiple emails in thunderbird
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect tigervnc to a remote vino-powered gnome desktop session
2. Fire up a program where you can control- or shift-click multiple items ex: thunderbird, nautilus file manager, etc
3. try to control- or shift-click multiple items
the shift- and control- part of the click are ignored, the mouse click is the only thing that goes through
shift- or control- click would be honored.
Have not tried other VNC servers aside from vino as the remote desktop server in gnome with F11, and have not tried other clients aside from tigervnc. this could potentially be a server issue (vino) and not a client issue (tigervnc).
After inspection it seems this is actually a bug in the Xorg - bug #506963
Using the Gnome desktop on F10-F12, ctrl-click works fine without desktop effects enabled but fails when they are enabled. Is This an Xorg or Compiz/Metacity or TigerVNC issue?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '11'.
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 11'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 11 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 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 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.
