Add a connection dialog to remote-viewer when no URI is provided on the command line
Last modified: 2012-05-26 04:04:39 EDT
spicy pops up a very simple dialog where one can enter connection information when the user did not specify where to connect to on the command line. It would be nice to get something similar in remote-viewer when no URL was provided.

remote-viewer: add a simple connection dialog
If the user doesn't provide URI, let's show a simple dialog to enter it.
Also save & list recently used URLs in that dialog.
Will be in next release
Daniel, should the state be changed to modified?
Not until the release is actally built in Fedora
virt-viewer-0.5.3-1.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
Any way we could get another featured added to the Windows build? It would be nice if spice:// URLs were registered as a mimetype with Windows so clicking on a spice:// link in Firefox and/or MSIE would pass it on to remote-viewer.exe. This seems to be the way to do it:
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\virt-viewer\\bin\\remote-viewer.exe\" \"%1\""
I'm not a Windows guru so there is probably a better way to do it... but if the virt-viewer-0.5.3.exe (or later versions) installer would register spice:// URLs it sure would save people a lot of headache figuring it out for themselves.
virt-viewer-0.5.3-1.fc17 has been pushed to the Fedora 17 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
