I used "Desktop Sharing" to enable VNC on my machine, I connect to it via "Remmina Remote Desktop Client" on another PC. I connect to the server, click on "Allow", and my screen shows up fine on the other PC. However, it does not change... it's frozen. I can, however, see the mouse moving and I can move the mouse from the client (I can also type stuff).

The weird thing is, when I start a LibreOffice Impress slideshow, it does work..

I'm on Ubuntu 14.04.3 and I'm using the fglrx drivers

david@david-desktop:~$ fglrxinfo
display: :0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 5450 
OpenGL version string: 4.5.13399 Compatibility Profile Context 15.201.1151

Does anyone have a solution to this?


Ah, I found it out myself, changing CaptureMethod to 1, fixed the problem!
