aFreeRDP with ugly brown desktop background since update

Hi,

since the latest update, aFreeRDP suffers from a very ugly brown desktop 
background, no matter, which performance/screen depth settings are active.

In fact, the desktop (color) is shown correctly a short while after login. 
After that, the real bg color appears around the desktop icons (a few pixel 
width) only.

Hitting the back key results in a new error message, BTW: (freely translated 
from german): 

Restrictions

This action was stopped due to limitations on the current computer. Ask your 
sysadmin (which is me, BTW)

OK

Cheers,
Pete

Compile on windows issues

Hi,

I'm trying to compile the FreeRDP in my windows OS, when I try to run the
cmaker:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\CMake\bin\cmake.exe" -DMONOLITHIC_BUILD=ON
I get the following Error:

CMake Error at C:/Program Files (x86)/CMake/share/cmake-3.0/Modules/
FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:136 (message):
  Could NOT find OpenSSL, try to set the path to OpenSSL root folder in the
  system variable OPENSSL_ROOT_DIR (missing: OPENSSL_LIBRARIES
  OPENSSL_INCLUDE_DIR)

How to solve this? , I downloaded the OpenSSL, but I have no idea what to
do with it!!! (what code i need, what bin and where to put!!!!

Where I can FIND clear and full instruction of HOW TO BUILD FreeRDP in
windows? , I see millions of questions about this issue, all have the same
issue, no one can compile in Windows.

Best,
Joseph

FreeRDP-WebConnect updates

Hi everyone,

We just merged in the FreeRDP-WebConnect repository [1] all the work that we did in the Cloudbase fork [2]. 

There are quite a lot of improvenets, in particular:

	• Lots of bug fixes and browser / platform compatibility improvements
	• Refactoring for integration with the latest FreeRDP bits
	• OpenStack integration with Hyper-V support
	• CMake build system with Windows, Ubuntu, CentOS / Fedora support

A Windows installer is available at [3], built by a jenkins job after every new commit.
There’s also a temporary wiki page with installation instructions on Ubuntu 12.04 and above [4].

Browser compatibility:

	FireFox >= 11.0
	Chrome >= 16.0
	Internet Explorer >= 10
	Safari >= 6
	Opera >= 12.10
	Safari Mobile >= 6
	Android Browser >= 4.4

Client OS support:

	Windows, OS X, Linux

There’s still a lot of work that needs to be done and we’ll continue releasing new features and fixes,
but we’re already really happy about how far this project is going.

trouble with usb redirection

I have compiled the latest freerdp from git (version 1.2.0-beta1
 1.1.0-beta+2013071101-2026-g33b44) on ubuntu 14.04 with usb redirection
using the following

cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release  -DWITH_PCSC=ON -DWITH_SSE2=ON
-DCHANNEL_URBDRC_CLIENT=ON -DWITH_FFMPEG=ON -DWITH_XINERAMA=ON
-DWITH_XCURSOR=ON -DWITH_DIRECTFB=ON -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/freerdp

Everything compiles fine with no errors however I am unable to use usb
redirection however.  When I run as non root it connects to server but I
get this

loading channel drdynvc
Unable to find a match for unix timezone: Etc/UTC
Loading Dynamic Virtual Channel urbdrc
VID: 0x1D6B PID: 0x0002
libusb_open: (by id) error: 0xFFFFFFFD (-3)

I figured maybe this was due to not being root so I ran as root and it
segfaults

loading channel drdynvc
Unable to find a match for unix timezone: Etc/UTC
Loading Dynamic Virtual Channel urbdrc
VID: 0x1D6B PID: 0x0002
fatal_handler: signum=11

Can anyone tell me what I can do to fix this as I would really like to get
this working

True capability of RemoteFX in FreeRDP-Server?

Hi,I have xfreeRDP-server installed on a VM running on windows 2012 server. I can RDP into this VM from a
remote desktop. The VM does not have access to the physical GPU and does some form of software rendering.
Will RemoteFX mode provide any improvement in performance at client side in such a setting? Thank you.

RemoteApp and Ubuntu Unity

Hi all.

First time poster to this mailing list so please be gentle. :-)

I'm having an issue that is oft mentioned in the GitHub issues tracker, the
local window manager and xfreerdp arguing about window positioning of
RemoteApp windows.  This results in some weird stuff like the remote window
not lining up with the local window (e.g. black area at the top of the
local window, bottom of remote window cut off) and strange Z ordering (e.g.
menus, dialogues, etc. behind the window that spawned them).

I'm not here to re-report a known issue, I'm really just wondering if
anyone is using RemoteApp with Ubuntu (default Unity/Compiz window manager)
and has come up with any workable workarounds?  Nothing is too hacky to be
considered.

On a different topic, does anyone know of a convenient way that a program
on the client end could communicate with a program at the server end
through the RDP connection?  I'm thinking about setting up a virtual serial
port to pass messages through but if there's already a simpler way that
I've missed, I'd love a pointer.

Thanks all.

Shaun.

IBM i Access Keyboard Issue

Hi,

I am facing an issue that is similar to
https://github.com/FreeRDP/FreeRDP/issues/489 which have been closed.

When accessing the IBM i Access Emulator (version 7.1) through freerdp, I
get the error

PCSWS037 - Initialization of the keyboard table failed. The session may not
be fully operational.

When I try to set the keyboard to US within the application itself, then it
gives me the error

PCSKBD110 - The system keyboard (type=0, subtype=4) is not supported.

which is similar to the one in the issue 489.

I have tried the first recommendation from the issue to change the
settings.c file and recompile version 1.0.2. However, I still get the same
first error. And the second error have now become

PCSKBD110 - The system keyboard (type=1033, subtype=4) is not supported.

I have tried compiling version 1.1.0 and then adding the
/etc/winpr/HKLM.reg as suggested by the issue, but I get the same error
message.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Connection Broker and Round Robin DNS

Hey all!

I'm running into an issue with FreeRDP closing when I connect to a Server
2008 R2 RDS farm that has a Connection Broker and round robin DNS. I am
using the latest testing FreeRDP package included with OpenThinClient V2.
Currently, the farm has NLA disabled and I am not passing any login
information.

When I make the connection, the standard Windows login screen appears. I
can login and authentication takes place successfully. However, more often
than not, FreeRDP will close at this point with no errors or warnings. I
think I have it traced down to instances where the initial connection
attempt happens on a RDS Host server, but after authentication, the
connection is redirected by the Connection Broker to another RDS Host
server.

Instances in which the connection is redirected to the same server that the
initial connection is made to do not cause FreeRDP to close, and the remote
connection works as expected.

Is this a known issue, or am I missing a configuration option?

Thank you for any help or direction that you might have.

Chromebook support

I was curious if there are plans to create a google app for FreeRDP to work with chromebooks.  Right now the
options for RDP clients is extremely limited and performance seems poor.
