today I tried once again desktop sharing with the release version 2.3. Streaming the desktop works just fine as always - however remote control fails. I tested between two Linux machines (Mint Nadja and Ubuntu 11.10) on the same LAN. Acvtivating “remote control” on either side does not make a difference. I can move the mouse - I might have seen some tool tips of the remote screen, but I can neither click nor type in time. It may be that the clicks arrive 100 years later (felt) - but i couldn’t reproduce this.
Another interesting phenomenon: On the Mint machine I logged on as the second user (keeping the first one open by locking the screen and re - log on) When I share the 2nd screen, I actually stream the 1st one (with the lock screen).
We might have some signalling issues too: After closing the connection from the near side, Jitsi atthe remote side stays as if it were still connected. Going physically to this screen and closing the Jitsi windows does not work as the mouse pointer plays hide and seek with me - I cannot move it to the hangup button and when I try then it jumps somewhere else.
What’ s wrong? Has anyone similar or better results with shared desktops. It’s such nice feature and it used to work back in old 1.0 times…
