[Bug 1370014] Re: Window size larger than workspace


I've reinstalled 1.0.0-4ubuntu3, and I've found a work around by changing  the "Default View Mode" to "Scrolled Window" instead of "Automatic":

This opens a very small window that I can at least maximize easily. I'd
rather it already be maximized upon launching of an RDP session, but
this small window is much better than the over-sized window problem when
using "Automatic" for Default View Mode.

Bug description:
  Please view this video of the bug I'm reporting:

  To reproduce this bug, you will have to Enable Workspaces In Ubuntu
  Unity, like this:

  System Settings > Appearance > Behavior > Enable Workspaces

  Essentially, when using the Unity desktop (using workspaces), Remmina
  is launching remote sessions into a window larger than the workspace
  to which I'm launching it.

  Another thing to note about my set up, is that I do use Ubuntu's
  scaling feature to make things about 10% larger than the default size
  (to accommodate my otherwise straining eyes). Some times I use large
  text too. These facts may be totally unrelated to the bug, but I
  thought I would at least mention them. Also, I do use multiple
  monitors, but this too might be unrelated to the bug. I think the
  essential thing, is that I have Workspaces enabled.

  I'm using a fully update Ubuntu 14.04 Desktop 64bit.
