I need the SuSE 10.2 version of the KRDC !


Help! The version of KRDC that shipped with SuSE 10.2 had a fullscreen setting that I loved, with nice large letters. The version of KRDC that shipped with SuSE 10.3 is pretty crappy all the way around.

How do I get this older version to run on my newer KDE?

Any hints would be very helpful. I'm not even sure where to go. I tried the kde sites and opensuse.

I'm using this at work eight hours a day so any help would be great!

Usually, krdc is shipped with the kdenetwork package. Are you forced to use SuSE 10.3? If not, just stick to 10.2 eh?

http://download.opensuse.org/distrib....5-29.i586.rpm

Before you click and download anything, BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP. Don't hose your system due to one package.

SuSE 10.3 is a lot better than 10.2 in most ways.And everything except krdc is working perfectly, so I really hate to mess too much with it.

It's just frustrating because I have to use the 10.3 krdc about 8 hours a day, and I didn't expect it would be so different from the 10.2 version, which I've been using for years at home.

Ok, I'm an idiot. It turns out that ctrl-alt-+ does what I want.

I'm going have to learn more of these key combos!

Well, just in case anyone else needs to know. The base program for all this rdp apps seems to be rdesktop. It's best just to run it, the overlay apps tend to crash. One of the command line options allows you to scale it up by percentage, I'm using 90%
