Description Thomas Nilefalk cendio 2017-11-07 10:35:30 CET
As a user I want to know if I'm shadowed or not.

Currently there is an optional notification/confirmation when the shadowing starts, but since bug #37 no information when shadowing ends.

There is also no visual clue while it is happening. A user might forget, or the shadowing can continue over disconnects for a long time.

A small step in this direction might be to just inform the user of the termination of the shadowing connection.

Explore "QueryDisconnect" in X11 vnc extension.

Duplicate of bug 5526?

No, bug 5526 is for the shadower. This bug is for the shadowee.
Comment 4 Pierre Ossman cendio 2017-11-07 12:50:17 CET
Let's make an attempt at at least getting the notification for the end of shadowing back.

Change of plans. We'll do this attempt under bug 37.
