Version: (using KDE KDE 3.4.1)
Installed from: Gentoo Packages
I find myself checking "Always show local cursor" on over half the sessions I open.
It would be convenient if I could just set this globally in the preferences and never touch it again.
(of course, I understand this is a pretty minor convenience and will probably not be a priority of any kind)
I think this option is available:
-c, --local-cursor Show local cursor (VNC only)
If so, this should be closed.
What I'm saying is, it would be nice to have as a global configuration option so I don't always have to choose it in the GUI or remember to put it on the command line.
Standard disclaimer: KRDC is currently unmaintained, and as long as it remains so its future is uncertain.
However, if KRDC survives to the next release of KDE, I will try and get this in there one way or the other. :) It bugs me too.
SVN commit 563036 by kling:
Make "always show local cursor" and "view only" permanently configurable via krdcrc.
Since we're in a GUI/message freeze, I can't add any GUI to these options until KDE4.
The options and their defaults are:
M +3 -0 krdc.cpp
M +2 -1 main.cpp

Can this reopened please. This is not fixed in KDE 4.1.1. I think it never was.
