Bug Description

Share My Desktop in Ubuntu 11.10 seems to be broken. The user receives no feedback, and nothing interesting happens. Doesn't appear to matter what version the client is using. The XMPP server is OpenFire 3.6.

Release: Ubuntu 11.10 (freshly installed)
Empathy Version:

Relevant Empathy debug logs attached.

Same problem here on Openfire too. And it doesn't seem any better on Gtalk either. Quite serious for us here as we are using this to help our users a lot.

Is nobody working on this problem ? :-( It's a great tool for computer support when you don't want to deal with firewall settings or VPNs.

gdb /usr/lib/vino/vino-server
- Hit 'r' to start it once it's loaded in gdb
- Try to offer a tube
- Once vino crashed in gdb type 'bt full' and attach the out put on upstream bug.

Hi Muhammad,
I read instructions on Gnome Bugzilla and I think, that their instruction (somewhat unclear) "Try to offer a tube" means "Try to share your desktop". After it fail, then return do gdb and type "bt full" to get list of information useful for developers solving this problem. Unfortunately, I got only "No stack." - please try it on your machine - if you will be more succesfull, then it will be possible to complete bug report at Gnome Bugzilla and get problem solved.
