Double-click required for single-clicks to register on remote attachments

I am really enjoying xpra! Thank you for making it.

I don't have any trouble when I'm attached to a local xpra server, but when I connect to a remote one, I have to double-click for single-clicks to register. Right-clicking works fine.

Please provide details, are you really using v0.0.7.36? If so, please upgrade to the latest release.

If not, please tell us (full version info): your local desktop environment, operating system at both ends, type of connection, what commands you run, does this happen if you use a different machine/desktop/version?
Is there anything suspicious in the logfiles?

Also, you talk about "remote attachments" in the title of the bug - this is presumably in some application that you use? Which one? Is this the only place where this occurs? If so, a screenshot of the exact location would be great (to help me reproduce it reliably).

(reply obtained via email)
I'm running Ubuntu Precise at both ends. The app in question is
I haven't checked any logs - does xpra write any by default?
Do I need to build xpra myself or can I hunt down a deb?
I'm not at my computer right now or I'd google around. And by "remote
attachments" I meant when I attach to a remote xpra instance over my
LAN via ssh, as opposed to attaching to a local instance.

Yes, the xpra server does create a log file when you start it, it tells you about it too.
The client does not, although you can increase verbosity by adding "-d all" to the command line.
But in your case, this would not be particularly helpful I don't think.

You have not specified what version of xpra you are using.. so I still do not know..

There are fresh new builds in the beta repo (built today):

Otherwise, use the standard builds:

I installed 0.6.3 but haven't tested it remotely yet. I see 0.6.4 is in the repo now. I'll install it and let you know what I find out.

0.7.0 is in the repos now.

Also note that whether the app is on a remote system or a local one makes absolutely no difference, so there must be something else at play. Have you tried using a different desktop environment?
Shot in the dark, are you using KDE?

If you are using KDE, this is from the winswitch faq

I Use KDE and I can't click in windows, they move instead
That's because of a bug/feature in KDE. To work around it, execute oxygen-settings and change WidgetStyle?->Windows drag mode to Drag windows from titlebar only. This can only be fixed permanently in KDE.

I was sucessful after making this change.

Resolution: fixed
Status: acceptedclosed

OK closing, thanks.

Note this is also covered in the xpra faq

(hopefully ubuntu will pickup the KDE fix in quantal.. we have had the magic KDE workaround token since r773, about 6 months ago)
