[SRU] Mouse Wheel does not work in RDP/VNC (12.04)
Medium frequency of occurence, but this patch satisfies the expectation of users to be able to scroll windows in the same way used as outside a remote session. Based on the number of people affected and subscribers, This is an common expectation.
Also this is a regression, since it worked in previous versions of Remmina.
Small patch written by Jean-Louis Dupond, integrated upstream. See https:/
See "Development Fix".
1) Connect to a RDP or VNC -enabled system; open a window where scrolling would be necessary.
2) Attempt to scroll the window via a mouse scrolling wheel, or touchpad scrolling region.
Minimal; affects remmina only. This is limited to the scrolling behavior for the GDK_SCROLL_SMOOTH event, which was missing. Possible regression would be the lack of support of that event (so equivalent to not patching).
Issue: Scrolling/Mouse Wheel does not work in Remmina (for both VNC & RDP plugins)
The patch is already applied upstream: https:/
Its a quite small patch. We just needed to implement SCROLL_SMOOTH.
Testing the fix is easy.
Without patch: unable to scroll with mousewheel in rdp or vnc connections
After patching: we can now scroll in vnc & rdp
