GNU Xnee bug fixed – multiple displays

Have been working a lot with a bug in GNU Xnee lately. Anja who reported the bug came back to me and have found the reason and the solution. In short Xnee was used to record switching of TTYs (she had two different X servers on the same computer). The pressing of Ctrl, Alt and Fn gets recorded while the releases don’t. When replaying Xnee causes the X server to get into a sstrange state. Almost the same trouble as in the GNU Xnee FAQ

`Xnee seems to mess up my entire session after replaying a sessions which was interupted by Control-C?’

… this all leads to the question, should it be possible to record several display using Xnee??????


FSCONS – interviews … on the other side

Just started to interview the spekaers of this year’s FSCONS. I was interviewed in Göteborgs Fria Tidning the other day and it’s not until now I begin to appreciate the work that has to be done in order to do a good interview.

As soon as the interviews are read, we’ll publish them on the FSCONS pages.
