I'm wondering if multi monitor support for RDP (and maybe even VNC?) is on Guacamole's roadmap?
{quote}

The short answer is that this JIRA _is_ the roadmap.

To check whether something is on the Guacamole's roadmap, take a quick search through currently-open
issues in JIRA. If something you're looking for isn't present, then the next step is to create
an issue requesting that feature, as you have just done.

I've found a ticket on the old Jira where a developer suggested it may be a trivial fix that
involves adding a few flags and then the ticket went quite in 2015.

I doubt that this will be as trivial as implied by that suggestion. Few features boil down
to, simply, mapping things to FreeRDP flags. I haven't looked into the level of support within
the FreeRDP library, but my main worry would be in how Guacamole should expose those multiple
displays to the user.

For multi-monitor support to work well, users would need to be able to:

# Interact with the large, multi-monitor remote desktop despite having only one local monitor.
# Interact with the multi-monitor remote desktop spanning their local multi-monitor setup.

How the above could be achieved is not immediately clear.

> Hello,
> I'm wondering if multi monitor support for RDP (and maybe even VNC?) is on Guacamole's
roadmap?  Currently, when we RDP to a workstation with multiple displays, we only see the
primary display.  Can't find any options in the connection settings to configure multiple
monitors.
> I've found a ticket on the old Jira where a developer suggested it may be a trivial fix
that involves adding a few flags and then the ticket went quite in 2015...so just wondering
if this feature is in fact being added and if there is any ETA for it?
> Thank you
