Bug Description

my o/s is 9.04 and my friends is now 9.04 and this bug has only happened since i installed 9.04 as a fresh install on his pc. previous to this he had 8.04 and everything ran just fine

now what happens is can connect to his pc and see his desktop

in the middle of his desktop i see step 7/7 and i can move my mouse around on his screen via the sharing

but i cant click on anything

if he grabs his mouse and moves it round the screen i see the mouse move

but if he opens any programs or what ever the screen does not change at my end but on his everything runs like normal

hope this makes sense

just seems strange when he had 8.04 everything was fine and now 9.04 is installed it goes stupid.i installed 9.04 on my friends pc a few days ago and this sharing program has never worked since then. :-((

Hi Dez,

Thanks for your report. This is actually a known bug in 9.04 - remote desktop doesn't work when visual effects are enabled.

You can work around it in the short-term by disabling visual effects before starting your session. Hopefully, remote desktop with visual effects will be fixed in 9.10.
