I contacted John Hass, the original developer and synchronized changes with him.

I've uploaded a newer version (at the top of this thread) that includes his changes, the changes made by Leon and my changes.

I've also set the default font to DejaVu to match the rest of Puppy

Leon,
Could you remove your attachments so new users don't get confused? (don't remove your message, as it is important to keep track of the history)

Great team work!
Leon made the following changes
- Align bottom buttons
- Set white field backgrounds

John Hass, the original developer, sent me the following changes which I synchronized with our changes. Now our version and his official version are the same.
- Added console mode to Desktop tab
- Added error checking if /usr/bin/rdesktop does not exsist (I modified it to check for "which rdesktop")
- Added compression to experience
- Added do not send mouse motion events to experience
- Added Force bitmap updates to experience tab
- Added a Makefile for easy installation (As the package is already a dotpup, it does not include the make file)

It would be useful to add version number in window title like Remote Desktop Client 0.3 and into the contents of About tab.

Hey rarsa,

I love this new RDP client script, but I'm having trouble running it on Puppy 2.14. Here is a link to my enquiry, just in case the problem is with the script and not Puppy 2.14

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=14909

Any assistance greatly appreciated

Subject description: keymap forwarding
 

How about keymap forwarding, the -k switch. I was using the GUI last night but couldn't find a \ key on the remote machine without editing the script to include "-k en-gb" in the rdesktop call.

I thught it was there, but I've been working on a newer newer GTK based UI that looks twice as nice as this one. I'll post it later today.

Updated version 2.15

- I've converted the code from tk to gnocl for full GTK compliance. It now follows your GTK theme and looks great!
- I've implemented the same look as the windows application to increase familiarity
- I've implemented most of the options available on the command line

When I saw the thumbnails, I thought, "What are Windows screenshots doing here? Must be an example or something...". Then it clicked. So I clicked on them to see the full sizes. I sat there at ImageShack trying to figure out how to see them. Then I realized the ad that looked like a dialog box wasn't an ad at all, but the screenshot Rolling Eyes So I slapped myself a second time, decided I should go to sleep soon, and came back to tell you they look great.

I'm going to have to look into this gnocl stuff.

Just tested new version and found slight problem. It looks just like the RDP client in Windows, which is a plus for our client base. Only problem I found is when I click on save to store a profile - computer grabs every CPU cycle and goes into hard disk thrashing mode for several minutes with no end in sight!

I end up needing to kill the process to stop the lock up. Client connects fine otherwise.

Cheers.

Damn! that happened to me once but as it was just once I thought that it was something else.

I will remove the download until I fix it later today.

Thanks for the advice.

Version 2.15-2 uploaded

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=92220

I've fixed a couple of bugs:
- I've fixed the bug reported by WhoDo where the application was freezing and using 100% of computer resources if trying to save without having loaded a profile before.
- I've fixed a bug where clicking the load or save button made it forget the name of the last file saved.

This version should be solid as a rock. (yes, it is a challenge to see if you find bugs)
