I've updated the long-standing patch for Xinerama support in rdesktop to version 1.7.1. I've also created an AUR PKGBUILD (rdesktop-xinerama).

It seems that upstream isn't responding to this at all. Relevant upstream bug reports:

I'd like to propose adding this patch to the official version of rdesktop in the ABS.
This task depends upon

If upstream doesnt support it, why should we add it and yes it looks like the project is kinda unmaintained. Freerdp might be a better alternative.

Assigned to latest packager.

I've reassigned to the maintainers of the 2 packages that depends on it.

krdc doesn't need it. So, since we do not apply non-upstream patch, -1 for me.
