Bug Description

Binary package hint: vinagre

Request for enhancement:
In lieu of / addition to the scaling request (#204802), I would like to have the ability to automatically pan the remote display while in fullscreen mode. This would mimic the behavior of xvnc4viewer.

I'm not sure I'm understanding you. What is 'pan'/'panning'?

When the mouse cursor reaches the edge of the viewport, it automatically scrolls in the direction of the edge reached. For example, I am connecting into a 1280x1024 screen from a 1280x800 screen. Upon connection, the top 800 lines are visible. When I move the mouse cursor to the bottom edge of the screen, the view is automatically moved down making the lower part of the remote screen visible.

pings are useless unless they come with a patch attached...

I am a user, not a developer. If I could have written a patch, I would have. I was simply ensuring that the report did not time out.

Right, setting to confirmed so it doesn't expire.

Anyway, expiration is turned off for Ubuntu bugs (for now, it may change in the future).
