[Bug 978050] Re: Broadcasts not working properly in multiseat environment


This fix worked for me!

Epoptes 0.5.10 running on Ubuntu MATE 18.04.1 LTS 32-bits, both server
and clients.

Anyway, I must wait the clients to open a session in their machines to
get them accessed through epoptes. Before updating from Ubuntu 16.04 to
Ubuntu 18.04, I was able to broadcast their screens BEFORE they could
open a user session so I could force them to start working. Any idea?

  Broadcasts not working properly in multiseat environment

Status in Epoptes:

Bug description:
  I have a multiseat setup in my lab, with 8 CPUs for 16 seats, using
  Userful Multiplier. Epoptes works very well with all seats, except for
  broadcasting. When I try to broadcast my server screen to all clients,
  sometimes it doesn't show at all, sometimes it shows in the first seat
  of each computer only.

  When I select the second seat (DISPLAY = :1) of a given computer and
  try to broadcast to that seat only, it shows in the first seat
  (DISPLAY = :0) anyway.

  Nevertheless, I can access each seat remotely without any problem.
