View Full Version : [xfce] RDesktop Broken after Upgarding to 12.04

Hello all....

Well I finally took the plunge and upgraded to 12.04. The first thing that broke was Rdesktop for accessing my remote computers. RDesktop works fine accessing VNC servers. It also works fine accessing a Win XP machine via RDC. However when accessing Win Xp machines in fullscreen mode, the dropdown menu at the top of the screen no longer drops down. So switching out of fullscreen is not possible. I have to do a hard disconnect, which defeats being able to run in a window while working on other tasks. I could use VNC on the WIN XP machine, but find VNC extremely slow compared to RDC.

I then tried to switch to Remmina, which everyone claims is great. However, many times while accessing my Win XP computer remotely it actually crashes the Win XP computer and forces a reboot.....NOT GOOD!

I still like using RDesktop...but cannot stand being unabel to switch back and forth to and from fullscreen.....any thought?
