Re: Query on VNC

Hi! VNC is working perfectly fine.
Just one more thing.
How do I keep my .gnome different for my VNC and my current session.

Your .gnome *are* distinct, unless you have your home NFS or
otherwise distributed on both local and remote.  In the latter
case, read GNOME documentation or ask GNOME users how to point
your GNOME session and applications to a different config dir
(perhaps using an environment variable).

This is required as I want different key bindings for VNC session and current session( DISPLAY 0 )
Otherwise one overwrites the other.

Thanks and Regards

If you mean that F8 does not pop you a menu in the fullscreen
VNC session then you either:

* did not try F8 :)

* do use a VNC flavour which may have a different mechanism
  (have you RTFM? :)

* your VNC client is broken/misconfigured

As I mention before, you can quit both RealVNC and TightVNC from
the menu that pops after keying F8 in the full screen view.
IMO, the latter VNC behave flawlessly to any of my sawfish

Thanks for the info. But if I use VNC fullscreen then my local sawfish gets hidden behind, and I can no longer work on the local sawfish untill I kill the VNC session. In fact I have to kill the VNC server as I am unable to close my VNC viewer session.

Having different keybindings works fine, but I would prefer having same keybindings for both local and remote sawfish sessions. I guess that's possible only if I use VNC full screen, but then as I said with VNC fullscreen my local sawfish gets hidden.

Are you using VNC full screen or not?

If full screen, all key/mouse events are grabbed by the remote
(except for F8), thus configure your remote bindings as if
you were using it from its keyboard/mouse.

If you used VNC in a window, then make sure whatever you
configure for the remote sawfish has is not configured to do
something on the local sawfish.

I happily use the same keybindings on both local and remote
and TightVNC full screen.

Wanted to know if there is a way I can customize keybindings inside my vncsession. For example, if I can have a key binding to cycle windows that are inside my vncsession.
