Could you please clarify what version of Remote Utilities Host is used on the remote machine? In case if you use version 18.104.22.168, please try updating your remote Host to the latest 6.12 Beta 2 version - there was a similar issue in the previous versions of Remote Utilities with some keys not working on a remote computer in some circumstances, which was fixed in the most recent Beta version releases. The 6.12 Beta 2 version is available for the download on this page.
Thank you for the advice. I was using the latest stable host v22.214.171.124 on the computer I was testing connecting to with the linux viewer. I installed 6.12 Beta 2 host and the typing problem seems to be resolved now.
I tried opening the viewer using the terminal and can see there is a lot of output of what the viewer is doing in the terminal. I was unable to reproduce the crash but I will keep launching viewer from linux terminal each time I use it & will hopefully have something to share soon.
Just wanted to add my .02 here, I've defaulted my host settings to Use Legacy Capture Mode, especially if the host computer is a laptop. I've noticed that many laptops when the lid is shut and the Use Legacy Capture Mode is not checked, the Viewer gets a blank black screen. Opening the lid restores the image on the viewer screen. Turning on Use Legacy Capture Mode enables the viewer to operate a laptop with a closed lid.
I have been testing the Linux Viewer on OpenSUSE 15.2 for the past 3 days and I have been unable to enter passwords containing special characters on the host computer. I'm not sure which characters aren't working, I'll do some more testing later on to see which keys aren't working. I'm using US-English keyboard layout on all PC's.
Other than that I occasionally have a problem with connecting to my host computer. The host window loads briefly and then the Viewer and Host windows crash. After the first crash, subsequently launching the viewer and connecting to a host will crash the viewer again. Restarting the computer seems to resolve this but it has happened a few times at least.
It's nice to have a viewer in Linux. Can't wait for the Linux host!
In AdwCleaner 8.0.2 settings disable "Ask before rebooting PC" what it does during the cleaning process is close every process and then reboot the PC but if you don't disable that setting there will be a prompt for the user to click OK after all running process's have been quit. It will reboot automatically after you disable that setting & RU will start when the PC is restarted.
Whenever I need to enter Remote settings from Viewer and at the end you have to Press OK to restart the remote host, it never restarts successfully, it always needs to be manually restarted either by the client rebooting their PC or opening Start Host or using an alternative remote desktop program to Start Host. Is anyone else having this problem? I'm using the latest Host, Viewer & RU server as of this writing.
I sometimes have the same issue when upgrading host's or changing host settings that require restarting the host. It varies from PC to PC & I haven't isolated the cause yet. I use two different remote programs as a precaution & make sure I'm logged in on my secondary program before doing any host upgrade or host restarts. In almost all cases rebooting the host computer will auto-start the host with Windows, if this is your only option I'd recommend scheduling a system restart in Task Scheduler to occur just after you upgrade or restart the host on remote machines.
