    seamless, no desktop RDP with window decoration

    Dear all,

    since a long time (in particular after upgrading to a new laptop and the most recent Ubuntu version), all seamless RDP windows show up with the Ubuntu desktop theme boarder.

    I have a desktop PC with XP and a Dell E4300 with Ubuntu 9.04 (compiz+emerald). XP is set-up to run without desktop, so when starting a seamless RDP session for the explorer window, I get also the windows task bar at the bottom.

    However, the task bar (and any other pop-ups and tool-tips) come up with the windows frame from Ubuntu. That was not the case before. I suspect, it has something to do with the compiz set-up but have no idea really.

    Does anybody know how to fix that?

    Thanks,

    Riko

    It's a known bug

    From another post on here, "rdesktop" from Debian does not show the issue. I am just trying to figure out how to install that.

    Actually, you can fix that yourself, as I found out:

    That worked in 9.04 and is still working in 9.10

    Cheers,
