Description Samuel Mannehed cendio 2023-07-25 11:07:39 CEST
I can't start the ThinLinc client in full screen on all monitors in GNOME on Fedora. The client window starts in windowed mode on a single monitor anyway. It doesn't matter whether I use "selected monitors" or "full screen on all monitors".

When changing to full screen while connected, things work as expected.

Works fine on Windows 11 and macOS 13. Have not tested any other Desktop Environments or Linux flavors than GNOME on Fedora.

Tested with GNOME on Wayland and GNOME on Xorg. Same results. Used a fresh new user without any ~/.config/monitors.xml file.

Tested using clients of the following versions:

 * 4.12.1 (before the changes made as part of bug 7006)
 * 4.14.0
 * nightly build 3234

Tested against a nightly server (build 3333) and against a 4.14.0 server (tl.cendio.se).
Comment 1 Samuel Mannehed cendio 2023-08-09 13:18:55 CEST
This seems to apply to both "full screen on current monitor" and full screen on all monitors.

Reproduced on two different Fedora machines (37 and 38).
