I am connected to a xmonad desktop but am only able to use the first workspace. How can I change to other workspaces?
Furthermore: If the last terminal is closed, I can’t do anything. How can I open a new terminal? The problem is, that my local xmonad catches the keystrokes.
Is there some magic key combination (shortcut) to circumvent the locally absorbed keystrokes, that is to escape the local shortcut to be able to send them to the remote VNC desktop? I mean something similar to screen, where you can press Ctrl+a a to submit a simple Ctrl+a to screen’s subprocess.
Or is there a way to enable and disable kbd capturing, as known from virtual machines’ visual interfaces? I mean like the right Ctrl key in virtualbox.
If that is of any interest: I am using
x11vnc as the server and
vncviewer from tigervnc (tightvnc) as the client/viewer. But I would change both of them, if that helps.
