Thread: FC6 rdesktop with Windows XP

    FC6 rdesktop with Windows XP

    I just upgraded my Linux system to FC6. With FC5 I would sometimes rdesktop into a remote windows system I use to check mail / schedule meetings with Outlook.

    The big difference is that with FC6 and rdesktop, scrolling through Outlook, or Firefox, or anything on the remote Windows system is very jerky, not smooth. There is no response, and then suddenly the scrolling jumps about 1/4 page. 1/4 page jumps make it difficult to work with some apps.

    Here is the simple script I use to connect. Anyone else have the same problem?

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    rdesktop -P -b -a 16 -K -D -g 1280x1024 -T Laptop -u username -d windows-domain -N  10.2.229.32

    Try this for FC6:

    Code:
    # XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 rdesktop -P -b -a 16 -K -D -g 1280x1024 -T Laptop -u username -d windows-domain -N  10.2.229.32
    It's a known problem with rdesktop and Fedora Core 6. The "XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1" at the beginning fixes it for now.

    I had the same problem. It was really bad with Outlook.
