Problems With Vinagre

26 Jul 2008

So, the default remote desktop app in Ubuntu changed from, um, I don’t know what actually, to a new app called “Vinagre”.

You’d think that’d be something I wouldn’t give a patooty about. The first thing you notice is that it has a list on the side that lets you keep track of servers you connect to which seemed nice enough.

I didn’t use it much at first, so I thought nothing more about it.

Today, I started using it. Dear god:

Update When input is captured, there’s no way to scroll the virtual desktop if it’s bigger than your current monitor. WTF?

Basically, it just seems like this app was pushed out way too quick to the main/default user stream. Please give me back my old VNC/RDP viewer. :(
