Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1306339
VNC file is not recognized
Last modified: 2016-08-23 12:23:32 EDT
Description of problem:
When try to connect via VNC file, error occurs says 'The file ... was not recognized by any plugin'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start VNC server for connect to
2.Create file named file.vnc with content:
3.In nautilus open file with vinagre
Error occurs, file was not recognized by any of the plugins
Remoted VNC session is opened
calling command `vinagre your_vnc_host:your_vnc_port is working`
The handler method for the -F parameter is not working. It was fixed in the newest versions with the port to GtkApplication (modern API), but the handler for positional arguments works just fine.
That's why ~Open with Remote Viewer...~ works when the vinagre.desktop.in file is used, but it doesn't when the launcher is vinagre-file.desktop.in.
Instead of risking causing regressions by backporting the main instance class of the application to our modern API, we should rather work this around by using the positional argument handling method for the vinagre-file.desktop.in as well.
This is an one-liner workaround:
-Exec=vinagre -F %U
If this seems reasonable, I would like to have the proper ACKs so I could make a release with the patch.
The problem here is actually that format of the vnc file has changed between releases of Vinagre. Current Vinagre expects Connection, Username, Host, Port, Password, Options and Shared keys. The version of Vinagre from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 expects lowercase versions of these. Change the keys to lowercase and it will work for you.
