Description Bill Sanford 2012-10-02 14:59:09 EDT
Description of problem:
When using RHEL7 and vinagre, the RDP session that is connected will only display the guest at an 800x600 resolution (Minimum resolution). There is no way to change it on the client or guest. 

There is already a bug upstream about this. I will have an external link to the bug

Comment 1 Marek Kašík 2012-10-25 07:01:26 EDT
You are right, vinagre doesn't offer changing of resolution of the host (except of running in fullscreen mode).

You can use "rdesktop {-u username} -K -g 1024x768" instead for now.

Comment 3 Marek Kašík 2013-05-09 06:23:36 EDT
I've created a patch adding spin buttons for specification of the size of the screen. It is attached in the upstream bug.
I'm moving this to 7.1 because this feature request needs an UI change.
Comment 4 Marek Kašík 2013-05-14 12:01:38 EDT
The patch has been committed upstream (vinagre-3.9.x).
Comment 15 Vaclav Ehrlich 2014-11-18 09:28:06 EST
Because bug's title coresponds to VNC  and bg's description to RDP I've tested both....both cases are working with vinagre-3.8.2-12.
