Description Jiri Belka 2013-10-01 11:20:12 UTC
Description of problem:
Unable to send ctrl-alt-del to a Windows guest while using spice-html5 console, thus it is impossible to login/unlock screen.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. spice-html5 setup with rhevm33, windows guest with windows guest tools
2. open spice-html5 console

Actual results:
could not send ctrl-alt-del monkey keystroke

Expected results:
there should be a way to send ctrl-alt-del so one can use windows with spice-html5

Additional info:
workaround exists: change to plugin console, send ctrl-alt-del, close the console and open again spice-html5 console

uri - i saw you commented on this patch[1] - do you know a way to do this?

Comment 2 Uri Lublin 2013-10-02 11:09:25 UTC
The committed patch [2] addressed my comments.

I see nothing calls sendCtrlAltDel().
I think in his implementation Amos added a send-ctrl-alt-del button that calls
this function.


Comment 3 Itamar Heim 2013-10-03 07:39:14 UTC
amos - how do we add that button? thanks.

Comment 4 Amos Benari 2013-10-07 08:10:57 UTC
In foreman the Ctrl-Alt-Del button is in the web page that host the console.
It is a simple button (link with some css decoration) that calls the js on click. 

<a href="#" class="btn" onclick="sendCtrlAltDel()">Ctrl-Alt-Del</a>

Comment 6 Sandro Bonazzola 2014-01-14 08:42:58 UTC
ovirt 3.4.0 alpha has been released

Comment 7 Pavel Novotny 2014-02-18 11:20:13 UTC
Verified upstream in ovirt-engine-3.4.0-0.7.beta2.el6.noarch.

SPICE-HTML5 console contains now new button "Send Ctrl-Alt-Delete" at the bottom (see following screenshot), which emulates the Ctrl+Alt+Del keystroke at the guest side.
