Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 827628
remote-viewer: [F11] key toggles fullscreen mode
Last modified: 2013-07-11 15:51:59 EDT
Description of problem:
When using remote-viewer to access a virtual desktop in RHEV, I find that pressing the [F11] key will cause remote-viewer toggle fullscreen mode.
I believe that the [F11] key should not toggle fullscreen mode in remote-viewer. Instead, the user should have to enter the key combination [Shift]-[F11].
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happens every time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a virtual desktop in the RHEV User Portal.
2. When the virtual desktop goes to a Ready status, double-click the picture to start remote-viewer in fullscreen mode.
3. Press the [F11] key.
remote-viewer changes from fullscreen mode to windowed mode.
remote-viewer should send the [F11] keypress to the Guest OS.
remote-viewer is better at adjusting guest display resolution than spicec. :-)
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '17'.
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 17'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 17 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, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
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.
On f19, f11 is still the shortcut for fullscreen. However it seems like if a VM has keyboard focus, then the shortcut is disabled, so I can't find a way that changing the shortcut matters because it's never going to conflict with what is sent to the guest.
Closing as NOTABUG, but if you can reproduce with F19, feel free to reopen if you disagree.
