Xpra: Ticket #2017: macos client menu: no 'session info', no Encoding menu

I had been using Xpra client 2.2.4 on macos 10.13.6 then upgraded (using the .pkg) to xpra v2.4-r20679.

Connecting to xfce4 desktop on centos-6.6, xpra v1.0.12-r19800.

  1. While connected, on the macos xpra client menu, the Info submenu displays, but "session info" is grey, cannot be selected.
  1. Also on the xpra client menu, Encoding has an arrow shown, but no choices are shown.

I'll make screenshots of both of these.

  1. Below is my client-side xpra config file, that I did and do use.
desktop-fullscreen = yes

When I start the client, in the client-side Xpra menu, Feature submenu, OpenGL is not checked and under Scaling submenu, none of the entries are checked (even "None" is not checked).

Even if I add these lines:


In the client-side Xpra menu, Features submenu, the OpenGL is not checked and in Scaling subsubmenu the None is not checked. Had it in my mind, both these options would help performance, and the client menu was a way to confirm if they are set. Thanks.

The macos menu is flaky and unreliable, we have a number of issues open against it (ie: #1385)

I'm not seeing this problem on any recent builds.

If you can still reproduce the problem with the latest beta builds, please provide more details as per wiki/ReportingBugs. It may be worth trying both python2 (default) and the newer python3 builds.
