Gnome-RDP, Terminal Server Client, vncviewer – Fullscreen woes! 12 December 2007

Posted by Maulvi Bakar in : Linux,System , trackback

Well, I am using Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon.  Feeling gutsy right?  😉

Anyway, it seems that whenever I connect to a remote machine via VNC protocol, doesn’t matter what my client of choice, if I am using ‘Fullscreen’, I’ll be ‘Full Screaming’.  Seems that the CTRL-ALT-ENTER does not work for me to switch windows.  I’ll be stuck to the remote machine screen.

Fortunately, there’s hope yet.  Press ‘F8’ button and voila! There’s a host of options in the menu revealed.

Great! You saved my guts 🙂 I am just looking for any help from the remote machine to which I connected via vncviewer in full screen mode 😀 wow 🙂

Now I need to find out how to glue vncviewer to one virtual desktop and switch between remote machine and local machine.

World is nice!

They seem to have fixed the switching bug in 8.04 (Hardy)

You can switch between fullscreen terminal server client and desktop using “CTRL+ALT+TAB”.

I have no clue whether the bug in VNC is fixed but in general I find TSC more convenient to work with.
