Description Marko Myllynen 2012-02-28 04:10:23 EST
Description of problem:
A SPICE enabled libvirt guest can be accessed using spicec for example with:

spicec --host localhost --port 5900

It would be great if the spice-xpi plugin would allow accessing guests from a browser directly, for example with:


or even (needing also some non-plugin changes):

Desktop entry

You can register custom scheme handler and since then, firefox can open spice://hostname:port by remote-viewer.

Steps, how to register:
1. copy remote-viewer.desktop to ~/.local/share/applications or /usr/share/applications
2. run update-desktop-database ~/.local/share/applications or /usr/share/applications

Thanks, it works! Now the obvious question is should virt-viewer or spice-xpi do this by default?
