Description 20120808_bugs.kde.org 2005-11-22 22:44:35 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.0)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
Compiler:          gcc (GCC) 4.0.2 20050901 (prerelease) (SUSE Linux) 
OS:                Linux

After connecting to a VNC (UltraVNC 1.0.1 on WindowsXP) server using KRDC, I usually enable the "Advanced/Always Show Local Cursor" option.

Sometimes I also click the "Scale" option, the resize the window so that the entire thing fits on my desktop.

However, I have noticed, that after clicking the "Scale", clicking on the Advanced button does nothing. That is, no longer do I see the "View Only" option or "Always Show Local Cursor" option.

After starting the application again, I can again click the Advanced button, seeing both options.
After starting the application, I enter fullscreen mode. At that time I have access to the two options on the Advanced button.

An interesting effect, starting the program, clicking Scale, right away, disables the two options in the Advanced button.
Then I enter fullscreen by clicking the fullscreen button. While in fullscreen mode I can again access the two options in the Advanced button. Then I exit fullscreen mode, and, surprisingly, I can again access the two options in the Advanced button.

But yes, if i then click Scale (to turn it off) then click it again (to turn it on), no longer can I access the options in the Advanced button ... (without the workaround that I just mentioned - fullscreen, clicking advanced button, exiting fullscreen mode).

Confirmed here, on Kubuntu 5.10, krdc 4:3.4.3-0ubuntu1, connecting to a Windows XP machine running UltraVNC 1.0.1.

Easiest work-around is to enable and then disable fullscreen mode, this re-enables the Advanced drop-down menu.

Confirmed as well on gentoo using KDE 3.5.2.
Comment 3 Jaison Lee 2006-05-06 21:05:20 UTC
Please be aware KRDC is currently unmaintained, and the future of the program is uncertain.
