Description Luiz Angelo De Luca 2007-12-10 16:20:09 UTC
Version:           3.96.3 (KDE 4.0 >= 20071120) (using KDE 3.96.3 (KDE 4.0 >= 20071120), compiled sources)
Compiler:          gcc
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release


krdc when using vnc does not send ctrl+alt+del even using "send special keys" dialog. Local Kde session manager always catches it and sends me to the logout screen.
Comment 1 Urs Wolfer 2007-12-10 21:17:02 UTC
What do you think about a button for sending for example such a "special shorcut" to the server?
Comment 2 Luiz Angelo De Luca 2007-12-13 17:10:15 UTC
If rdesktop can capture ctrl+alt+del, why not VNC?

Urs, there is already a menu entry for that but a shortcut button for CT+AL+DEL should be vey usefull
Comment 3 Sudhakar Mekathotti 2008-01-15 14:19:19 UTC
I think we've regressed with the latest version of krdc (supplied with krdc4). krdc from kde3 didnt have this problem.
Comment 4 Dario Savella 2008-01-23 15:17:42 UTC
Would it make sense to revert back to previous version of krdc or is it a problem with KDE?
Comment 5 Urs Wolfer 2008-01-23 19:23:09 UTC
Dario: you can of course use the old version of KRDC. I will try to work on a solution soon.
Comment 6 steve 2008-03-20 18:43:52 UTC
This bug makes the VNC feature of KRDC unusable for me. I'm stuck using the kde3 version until a solution is found.

SVN commit 788165 by uwolfer:

Completely change the behavior of entering special keys (like Ctrl+Alt+Del). Do not show a modal dialog which needs to be closed after every key sequence; instead replace it with a toggle action which can be enabled to fetch every possible key (all except some X server shortcuts like Ctrl+F1) while the remote desktop has the focus. This should improve the the workflow quite a lot. Please note that KWin shortcuts like Alt+Tab are not active while this mode is active and the remote desktop has the focus.

Thanks for fixing this. I just installed KDE 4.03 and can now use ctrl+alt+del
