Hmm, the new rdesktop behaves funny. No other application does this AFAIK.
The cure is simple: add option -g 99% to rdesktop.

New Firefox versions available

Firefox has been updated to 3.6.26 (for TS-2.2.2) and 10.0 (for TS-2.5).
For 3.6.26 you just pull a fresh copy.
For 10.0 you first have to edit the download URL in build.conf : 8.x
-> 10.x. Then pull.

Thanks Mike, that made a huge difference to transfer of files in both
directions. Are there any potential pitfalls in turning sync off?

Yes, it is potentially unsafe as file buffers don't get flushed before
removal. I never has problems, but no guarantee for anything.

Re: Can't minimise session

That "cure" is no good really, as it leaves the bottom half of the
taskbar cutoff.

I just tested with VNC and that doesn't provide any way to minimise
either, so I can't really see any benefit from this desktopkiosk mode
at the moment. I presume I could have used -g 99% with icewm?

Then I have absolutely no idea what you are trying to do. What taskbar?

I'm giving up to understand your aim.

error reading conf files


i use rdesktop sessions on icewm.

while testing thinstation 2.5 before deploy in live, i found a strange
issue. I build ts2.5 on my fedora box and move the boot files to
windows/tftpd32 server. After moving if i edit the conf files using windows
notepad/wordpad, then ts bootup process doesn't recognize this conf files
and sessions are not loaded. (both network and user conf files were received
and found in /etc/thinstation)

But if edit the conf files from fedora box no issues.

i have >50 ts2.2 user conf files which were edited using wordpad/notepad
only without any issues.

please help me to fix this ..

Thank You !

windows solution:
use a editor which serves the right to be called an editor.
google says Notepad++ is quite ok and free: http://notepad-plus-plus.org/

here it is how to convert the line endings:
http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/notepad-plus/index.php?title=Replacing_Newlines

unix solution:
copy the files back to the fedora box and use the dos2unix utility.
Maybe you have to install it first (yum install dos2unix)
"dos2unix thinstation.conf.*"

btw: normally wordpad preserves the file endings of an existing file.

Or find dos2unix.exe for windows and run that on the config files.

Re: Can't minimise session

A further point on this, I've been informed that when using VRDP into
a Virtualbox guest, the XP Start Menu doesn't show the Disconnect
option because it's connected to the console, so there's no way
currently of disconnecting from such a session without logging off
completely (or using the -g 99% option, but as I said that cuts off my
taskbar).

Is it not possible to have a shortcut (like the Ctrl-Alt-Fx for
switching virtual desktops) that will just drop the connection and
return the user to the desktop?
