Enh: Scaling support

Bug #204802 reported by Chris Roddy on 2008-03-21
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Vinagre: VNC client for GNOME
Fix Released
vinagre (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: vinagre

Vinagre should support scaling the remote display up or down to fit the local display hardware.

And good news -- this issue is marked as "resolved" in upstream gnome-bugs #476942, and is set for inclusion in the next release to follow 0.5.0.

Thanks for your bug report.

Unfortunately this depends on gtk-vnc trunk, and it's too late in the cycle to add it, so it will have to wait for 8.10.

Only half-fixed. A new bug has been filed for *down*scaling support. http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=533282

Regardless of whether its up/down scaling, it's silly to have to switch off compiz to use it - that, too, needs to be fixed, since you can't reasonably expect people to switch off compositing when the very graphics primitives that make compositing possible would also be of use in scaling pixmaps...

A most silly (but usable) workaround is to run a WIndows VNC viewer that supports scaling under WINE. Which only adds to the shame.

Rui, this is fixed in Jaunty. It no longer requires you to disable compiz.

Ah, thanks. Still, I hope someone backports it (or I'll just go and try to get the .deb), since I'm not planning to upgrade to Jaunty for a few months yet.
