Could you please update the Remmina packages? 1.0.0 is quite old, and Remmina 1.2 is now the current version upstream, with lots of bugfixes and feature upgrades. The existing packages have worked ok, but buggy (i.e. the NumLock bug), but it has worsened after the latest minor release (CentOS 7.2).

Remmina seems to be linked to the FreeRDP version.. and this one is supplied from Base and stuck at 1.0.
I'll see if I can make newer stuff available to you in a different/separate repo.

Can you try the below and let me know if it works for you as expected?

yum-config-manager --add-repo=http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/tmp/remmina-el7/
yum --enablerepo=li.nux.ro_download_nux_tmp_remmina-el7_ install freerdp remmina

Works good. Remmina updated to the newer version, and gone is the num lock bug, together with the extra ones after updating to latest CentOS 7 release. After the update I wasn't able to access the top menu in an active session (activating grabbing of keyboard events, screen modes and so on). This is now possible again. Thanks. Perhaps make a notice of this, since Remmina after all works best of the available RDP clients on CentOS, and other distros. I understand Remmina could be found in the Fedora EPEL repository earlier, but that the application for some reason was removed.

Update: I'm experiencing some instability issues after installing Remmina and freerdp. Sometimes the entire Gnome session hangs, and I need to reboot.

Hm, that happens while you are running Remmina?

Yes, that's correct. When having focus on another application, I must click on the application on the taskbar to work in the remote session. If not, the menu that pops up when clicking the right mouse button on the backgroud appears, or the Remmina window with the saved sessions. The entire GDM may become unresponsive when switching to the Remmina remote session with a left-click, not from choosing the remote session on the taskbar.

Information about the running system:

CentOS Linux release 7.2.1511 (Core)
Kernel 3.10.0-327.4.4.el7.x86_64
Gnome 3.14

Does any of this happen if you connect to the remote host via xfreerdp from the command line?

No, haven't tried to connect with xfreerdp from the command line. But after trying some more, I found another parameter: clicking "grab all keyboard events" on the top menu of the RDP session. After last crash yesterday I restarted GDM, reconnected, but this time I didn't activate keyboard grabbing. And this time, GDM didn't become totally unresponsive, and the remote session lasted throughout the rest of the day. But if another window is active I have to click on the RDP session on the taskbar, otherwise I only get the right-mouse-button menu as if I right-clicked on the desktop background.

Well, ok, not sure what to advise here, I don't even use this. I usee xfreerdp from cli.
If you like you can report this upstream, I'll be happy to apply any patches and so on to make it more usable.

It goes without saying I am not adding this to my repo. Smile

When you say "upstream", you mean CentOS, or even RHEL?

Have posted an issue about this on Remmina Github. Have there been any new builds since last time?

Got an answer from the Remmina project. Pasting it below:
Quote:

Are you sure Remmina and FreeRDP are installed correctly with the right version?

Something around:

$ remmina --version
Remmina - Version 1.2.0-rcgit.9 (git 379433f)
$ xfreerdp --version
This is FreeRDP version 2.0.0-dev (git 52f1e6b)

Remmina must be linked to the newest possible version of FreeRDP

Make sure you have only one version of FreeRDP and Remmina installed

rpm -qa | grep -i remmina

As of now, it seems that you provide FreeRDP 1.2.0. This package also will have to be updated in order for Remmina to running properly. Hope this helps.

Are there any plans to upgrade freerdp from 1.2.0 to 2.0?

Hello,

I can have a go at it the following weeks, it didn't go so well last time.
BTW I won't be able to include freerdp or remmina in the main repo as it'd overwrite EPEL stuff.

Installed without a glitch on CentOS 7.5 when doing 'yum update' with repo activated. Seems to work pretty good. Will try to activate keyboard grabbing, one thing that caused instability before. But, so far, so good.
