gnome-rdp tries to use tightvncviewer when setup to make a vnc protocol connection
Last modified: 2009-07-24 15:38:50 EDT
Description of problem:
gnome-rdp application in set to use tightvncviewer to launch a VNC protocol connection. tightvnc is not in the Fedora repo's, _tigervnc_ is. Tiger VNC has vncviewer
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install gnome-rdp -y
2. run gnome-rdp
3. Create a session, set it to use VNC protocol
4. Start the session by double clicking it
Session does not start, and a popup appears :
xtightvncviewer seems not to be installed.
In addition, console messages :
ApplicationName='vncpasswd', CommandLine='/tmp/tmp5689b522.tmp', CurrentDirectory='/'
-viewonly -passwd /tmp/tmp5689b522.tmp localhost
ApplicationName='xtightvncviewer', CommandLine=' -viewonly -passwd /tmp/tmp5689b522.tmp localhost', CurrentDirectory='/'
Should create a vncviewer process
Quick look at the source shows the use of tightvncviewer in src/Main.cs file:
321 prc = new ProcessCaller(
I think a small change , replacing tightvncviewer with 'vncvier' will fix the problem.
mumbles-0.4-11.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
Sorry about the mistaken update tag.
I tried changing the xtightvncviewer as suggested, however this launches the vncviewer but does not hand off the password correctly. I'll look into this deeper and see if I can get it going using tiger.
gnome-rdp-0.2.3-4.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
I had to make the modification and include both tigervnc and tigervnc-server (for vncpasswd). It appears to be functional now.
