Package: x2goclient
Severity: grave
Tag: patch

I have just found a patch for X2Go upstream bug #702 [1]:

What I do:

 o I launch an X2Go session with X2Go Client, client-side printing  
support is enabled
 o I minimize X2Go Client to the systray icon
 o I configure X2Go Client to show the print dialog window on  
incoming print jobs
 o I print a document inside the X2Go session

What happens:

The print dialog window appears. I select "Print"...

X2Go Client simply exits cleanly immediately when I click the Print  
button of the print dialog window.

The issue occurs in this combination of events:

  o print dialog appears on incoming print job
  o it doesn't matter what print action is chosen
    (pdfview, pdfsave, print, etc.)
  o X2Go Client's main window is hidden (e.g.
    via clicking on the tray icon)

What should happen:

The incoming print job should get shown as PDF or printed (whatever I  
chose in the print dialog window). The print dialog window should  
disappear, my remote X2Go session should continue...

The issue is related to this:


The related upstream patch is this:

I am still waiting for feedback from another upstream dev, once it is  
there, I will fix the issue in the x2goclient src:package in Debian  
unstable and hopefully testing (jessie).
