Bug Description

Vino, the built in VNC server in Ubuntu, has had a problem for many releases where it won't update the display when connected remotely if compositing is enabled. This can be easily reproduced using Unity and gnome-shell.

Apparently, bug #772873 only takes care of the same bug with the fglrx driver, so this bug is there to take care of the issue with ATI's open source driver.

Julien Olivier, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If so, could you please test for this with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in the development release from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p xorg-server REPLACE-WITH-BUG-NUMBER

Please note, given that the information from the prior release is already available, doing this on a release prior to the development one would not be helpful.

Thank you for your understanding.
