Next release timeframe?

Hi,

The way the ports and packages system works in OpenBSD is that the ports
tree pulls down a source code archive for a given port from a site that is
typically maintained by the upstream ports team.  Binary packages are
generated from the ports tree and uploaded to the OpenBSD FTP/HTTP mirrors
around the world so that people can install binary packages in a way
similar to Linux systems.

I'd like to get the OpenBSD port and package updated now that you all have
kindly accepted my patches to get the OpenBSD build current in the git
repo; however, I wasn't sure when the next "version release" of FreeRDP was
scheduled for.

Ideally, I would update the OpenBSD ports tree to pull the packaged source
code from a place like http://pub.freerdp.com/releases/ so that it could
build in the ports tree.

Thanks,
Bryan

Issue with Screenrefresh with .net Application

We are using Thinstation with FreeRDP 1.2.0-dev (git b73e61d).  We have issue with a .net application not
updating screen properly when clicking between tabs.  We are using XFWM4 as the windows manager.

What is odd is that we the screens refresh fine from an ubunto box running 1.2.0-beta1.

Any suggestions?

send bitmap update in 16bpp

Hi,
I am trying to send rdp content via fastpath update_send_bitmap_update to
Lync clients from my own app. It worked when I tried with sending color
blocks in 32bpp. But when I changed to sending 16 bits per pixel, it
stopped working.

I'm using this version of freerdp:
https://github.com/FreeRDP/FreeRDP/tree/stable-1.1

I have tried with/without disabling compression and that both worked fine
for 32bpp.

Any idea why that might be? 2 versions I used to draw the bitmap see below.

Thanks a lot!

Cheers,
Simon

Worked (32bpp):
  uint32_t width  = 32;
  uint32_t height = 32;
  uint32_t size       = width * height * 4;
  BYTE * rgb_data     = (BYTE*)malloc(size);
  uint32_t rgbColour  = 0xFFFFFFFF;
  BYTE * rgb_p = rgb_data;

  for (uint32_t u=0; u<size; u+=4)
  {
    memcpy(rgb_p, &rgbColour, sizeof(rgbColour));

I have patches to contribute for OpenBSD

Hello,

I have a set of patches I'd like to provide for review that gets the latest
from (as checked out from git) building and running just fine on OpenBSD
5.6 (the current release).

What's the procedure here for me doing that?  Should I cut a branch, push
up and submit a pull request?

Any help at all would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Bryan

OpenBSD

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone was currently maintaining FreeRDP on the OpenBSD
platform?  I swapped emails with Mike Erdely and it sounds like he is
currently too busy to update this (he is identified as the port maintainer
for the OpenBSD 5.6 port of FreeRDP).

Has anyone taken this over?  If not, I would be interested in submitting
some pull requests that at least got the latest cut from GitHub compiling
on my local system (I'm still hitting runtime errors so it's a bit of a
work in progress).

Please let me know if you are interested in me pitching in and if so, how
you would like for me to proceed.

Thanks,
Bryan

Smartcard redirection

Hello,

I have been trying to use smartcard redirection from Debian Wheezy (32bit) to Windows 2008 R2, everything
works perfectly but smart card redirection works kind of weird.

I am using REINER SCT cyberJack ecom plus (latest drivers), freeRDP 1.2.0, PCSC-lite 1.8.13 ... (I can fill
more apps if you'll need to know)

I have installed cyberjack testing utility on server from REINER SCT, so I could test the redirection...

For smartcard redirection I use command /smartcard (tried /smartcard:"full name as pcsc_scan/pcscd
service see the card" ("REINER SCT cyberJack ecom_a (1223734700) 00 00"), but whatever I fill cyberjack
testing app always see "cyberJack ecom_a 0" - that is quite odd.

Test won't get me even ATR of card or ATR of reader... (In rdesktop I get at least reader ATR... but freeRDP
works better in many other things, so I prefer it)

Any advice?

Thank you very much in advance.

Regards

Henry

Missing KEYCODE_TAB -> VK_TAB key mapping on Android client

Hello all,

I'm working on getting aFreeRDP running for a Motorola MC32 device as part of a client hardware evaluation
for our internal applications delivered over RDS. 
This device has an integrated barcode imager that sends keyboard input events to the active Activity. 
Our standard is to set the imager to send a Tab key after the decoded barcode to advance the cursor in the
remote application to the next field. 
However, it doesn't seem to work consistently, because the Android client is misinterpreting the Tab key.

I found that the KeyboardMapper class in the Android FreeRDPCore project was receiving a KEYCODE_TAB
KeyEvent in processAndroidKeyEvent. 
When it takes a trip into getVirtualKeyCode, it finds no vkcode for the Tab code, and falls through the rest
of the if-else cases until it sends the key as a UnicodeKey with value 9. 

Of the applications I tested on our server, only Notepad would correctly interpret the tab. Other
applications didn't receive the event at all. 

When I added a mapping from KEYCODE_TAB to VK_TAB in the keymapAndroid array, all remote applications
behave correctly. 
It looks like KeyboardMapper is expecting the Tab key to come in as a custom or extended key, but that's not
happening on my hardware. 
Is it acceptable to add the KEYCODE_TAB -> VK_TAB in keymapAndroid? 

Details on setup:
aFreeRDP Client from git master, March 15 2015
RDS Server version: Windows 2012 R2
Android Version: 4.1.1

See github issue #2486

Mapping caps-lock to ctrl?

As people have repeatedly pointed out, freerdp seems to ignore the
configured X11 key map while rdesktop obeyed it.  That means that my
mapping of caps-lock => ctrl doesn't work now that I've had to switch
from rdesktop to xfreerdp.

I've seen people ask how to fix this problem several times, and the
only answer I've ever seen is this one from 2010:

Except there doesn't seem to be any such path.  So how does one fix
the key mapping used by xfreerdp?

Windows 2012R2 and smartcard

Hello,

I am using FreeRDP from GIT Master branch (from March the 24th) on a Ubuntu
12.04 LTS5 to connect to a Windows 2012 RDS and a 2012 R2 RDS
infrastructure.

On Windows 2012 everything works fine, in particular the smartcard and
printer redirection.
However on 2012-R2 redirecting a smartcard causes problems.

The following tries are to a 2012-R2 broker :

Using no redirections:

Clipboard support for xfreerdp 1.1.0 broken?

I start Linux xfreerdp 1.1.0 with the +clipboard option, it seems to be enabling
the plugin, because is says this:

 loading channel cliprdr

But the clipboard feature mostly doesn't work.

With old rdesktop I could do this on the Linux machine:

 1) <somecommand> | xclip -i -selection clipboard

 2) Hit Ctrl-V in the windows session. 

And that would paste the output from <somecommand> into the windows
app. First time, every time.

With xfreerdp it mostly doesn't work.  But sometimes it does.  The
only way I've found to get it to work _reliably_ is this sequence:

 1) Select some text in the windows session

 2) Hit Ctrl-X in the windows session

 3) On Linux do 'xclip -o -selection clipboard'

 4) On Linux do '<somecommand> | xclip -i -selection clipboard'

 5) Hit Ctrl-V in the windows session

Steps 4/5 should be sufficient, but unless you first select and cut on

Any in-progress development for USB redirection channel server side?

Hi All,
Very glad to post in this mail list.I'm finding a server side rdp implementation these days and I found
FreeRDP has some. But some channels such as USB redirection don't have server side code. Is it already in progress?
ThanksZihao
