Slackware 14.1 Xfce + Remmina TSE Client vs. Windows 2008 Server : three problems
Some time ago, I installed a Slackware TSE client for a company, running Windows 2008 Server. It's a prototype, based on a stripped-down Slackware 14.1 Xfce desktop running Remmina as the only application.
After three weeks of intensive testing, we're facing three problems.
1. When opening a session from the Linux client on the Windows Server, Xfce opens a keyring application asking for a "master" password. This annoys the users. Is there any way to prevent this, so they can only be asked for the Windows session password?
2. In the remote Windows Server session, two important keyboard shortcuts don't work: Alt+Insert and Ctrl+F5. This is a major annoyance, as they are both used all the time in the company's accounting software.
3. Another misfunction in the remote Windows Server session is the fact that the cursor suddenly becomes white-on-white invisible in applications with a white background. For example, in an MS Word or MS Excel document, the cursor is invisible, and the secretary doesn't know where she will type something. This doesn't happen when connecting from a Windows client. I tried to change the main mouse pointer theme in Xfce, but to no avail.
I'm grateful for all suggestions.
