Description Andreas Grois 2020-05-07 08:01:55 UTC

I'm sorry, I don't have much time to investigate this myself right now.
In any case, since updating to =net-misc/freerdp-2.0.0-r1 I only get a black image when connecting to any Windows 10 remote system using Vinagre.

Downgrading to =net-misc/freerdp-2.0.0_rc4 gets Vinagre to work again...

Steps to reproduce:
1) install =net-misc/freerdp-2.0.0-r1 and Vinagre
2) connect to any Windows 10 remote using Vinagre
3) observe that you can't observe the remote machine's desktop

This is the output from freerdp if running vinagre from the commandline:

I connect to a Windows 10 machine daily using xfreerdp. This problem is probably limited to Vinagre.
Comment 2 Joakim Tjernlund 2020-05-11 11:14:53 UTC
try freerdp 2.1, I think I saw something similar on the freerdp list
Comment 3 Andreas Grois 2020-05-18 09:54:55 UTC
I'm afraid the same issue also occurs with freerdp 2.1.

But yes, it's definitely something that has to do with vinagre. If I use xfreerdp instead it works for the same windows PCs.
