Remmina VNC connections ignore my laptop keyboard.

Post by WFTaylor » Wed Jul 24, 2019 1:11 am

Have recently installed Mint 19.1, Remmina installed from repo but had some trouble getting a connection, ended up installing this older vino https://ubuntu.pkgs.org/16.04/ubuntu-ma ... 4.deb.html and adding this line
'192.168.11.232 haddon-Hp20-2201a.local' to '~/etc/hosts' which resulted in a working VNC connection; but my laptop keyboard does not respond. The trackpad worked fine, and interestingly the connection passes key stokes through just fine when I VNC'ed into my laptop when the laptop was already connected to 192.168.11.232, and key strokes passed through the daisy-chained VNC's perfectly; so the problem is somewhere between my VNC connection & my keyboard !!

I'll bring a USB keyboard home from work tonight to see what that does.

I have found nothing via google or the forums that resembles this problem so far.
