Description of problem:
During the creating of Windows terminal service connection is tsclient there is an option to set color depth (in Advanced Options section). But after setting this option is completely ignored - there is no flag in rdesktop command
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start tsclient from terminal (you will see runtime messages/commands)
2. edit/create a Windows Terminal Service connection and set color depth to e.g. 8
3. start connection
the runtime command message in terminal has no mention about color depth (flag '-a' in rdesktop)
flag "-a" in rdesktop command and proper color depth in remote connection
it looks like the color depth option is no even saved - the color depth option has default value (24) every time i try to edit the connection
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to
address this request at this time. Red Hat invites you to
ask your support representative to propose this request, if
appropriate and relevant, in the next release of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. If you would like it considered as an
exception in the current release, please ask your support
It works for me correctly with the following version:
Chosen color depth is saved in:
Chosen color depth is shown in edit connection dialog.
rdesktop commandline has -a with chosen color depth.
It seems it has been already fixed by Bug 798631.
