My host machine is using
Remote Desktop Connection Manager (RDCM) on
RDCM to connect to several remote machines running
CentOS7 (and connecting via
xrdp (used https://www.itzgeek.com/how-tos/linux/centos-how-tos/install-xrdp-on-centos-7-rhel-7.html to set up)) with their default
Gnome desktop GUIs. One of the sessions in
RDCM appears unresponsive to any cursor clicking.
Some info on the problem:
Has anyone had this problem before? What can be done to fix this?
This seems to be a common issue with gnome (https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=675345 and https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=767173). What seems to help is using another terminal on local machine to ssh into the remote and restarting the gnome desktop manager via
systemctl restart gdm.service. After a minute or two, going back to the frozen remote desktop session, it again appears to register mouse clicks.
