I am using vino 2.24.1-0ubuntu1 as the server on ubuntu 8.10. This is
included with ubuntu and is accessible through System > Preferences >
Remote Desktop

libvncclient is not a valid package name, please provide the package name to see which version I am running.
libvncserver is not currently installed on the machine.

I thought it could not be due to the server since, when connecting with
krdc 3.5, I am able to get lower quality and in turn faster screen
refresh. Keep in mind when I say "lower quality" I mean that some colors
are stripped away. On the same server, when using krdc 4.5, selecting
the "low quality" option does not show the show the screen with stripped

To give Jonathan the benefit of the doubt, I tested to see if it was the
server was the issue I booted from the ubuntu 8.04.1 Live CD and started
the vino VNC server (2.22.2-0ubuntu1). To my surprise, I actually got
"low quality", not as in stripped colors but, more pixelated. Reaction
time was fast and I had no loss of colors.

Assigning bug to vino package to see what changes in quality options
were made between 2.22.2-0ubuntu1 and 2.24.1-0ubuntu1.
