#40 Too much right mouse button emulation


The RightMouseButton emulation works for both: Ctrl+LMB and Cmd+LMB when using Opennx. This makes it impossible to select multiple files in a file browser which are not one after the other.
- For local applications like GIMP from MacPorts, I can use the Ctrl+LMR to select multiple files to open.
- If I start gimp via openNX, always the RMB is pressed instead of LMB if I want to select multiple files. Unfortunately, some applications do not except multi-file selection with RMB. Also checked with "xev"

My system:
Client: Tried with on OSX 10.7 64bit
Server: nomachine NX 3.4.0-7 on CentOS 5

Small note:
It would be helpful, If one could start a verbose logging function via commandline.

    After some tests, I could find out that this effect only happends with nomachine's server. FreeNX works without problems.

    As FreeNX works, this might have to do with either the server's nx-libs or with the actual target desktop. So the questions are:

    What version of the nx-libs is installed on your FreeNX server?
    Is the target desktop locally on the server or some third desktop system behind the server?
    If locally: Are both systems CentOS5?


  • Matthias Voelker

    the target desktop is in both cases locally at the server. All our servers are running CentOS5.
    FreeNX: NXSERVER - Version 3.2.0-74-SVN OS (GPL, using backend: not detected)
    no machine: NXSERVER - Version 3.4.0-14
