Description Markus Gaugusch 2005-04-27 23:43:49 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.4.0)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

I'm used to press ctrl-alt-SHIFT-del to get ctrl-alt-del passed to the client. I'd really like to see this feature in krdc. VNC works that way.

For some reason, ctrl-alt-shift-del kills my X-windows session, so this may conflict with another shortcut, but that should be configurable somewhere ;-)

By the way, while entering this bug I finally found out why the ctrl-alt-del button vanishes in full screen mode ... it should be made more prominent that ctrl-alt-del "just works" there, I would never have thought about that!

Probably the magic pattern needs to be configurable.

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.
