Improvements on Vino (GNOME Remote Access Desktop)


Recently i have made some patches to Vino – GNOME Desktop Remote Access. I think it is a very important piece of software in GNOME project, mainly in a enterprise environment.

Let’s consider them as my Christmas gift 🙂

Bug #326827

With this patch, Vino Preferences applet allows only one instance running. I’m using very fresh library gtkUnique to do the dirty job 🙂 – waiting approval to commit.

Bug #319798

Vino-preferences now shows the right display number. I’ve added d-bus capability on vino-server to do this job. – commited.

Bug #154467

This patch adds a notification area icon when there is somebody connected on your desktop. It allows you to disconnect any remote machines – or all of them. – commited.
Vino new notification area icon

Bug #387095

This patch shows a notification bubble in the new notification area icon – using libnotify – when a user connects. – waiting approval to commit.

Merry Christmas!

Let’s remember the true reason of Christmas – the birth of Jesus Christ.

  1. Vino is a great VNC server, it’s really nicely integrated with GNOME. And your patches make it twice as useful. It looks really promising for the next version, and I hope they land in cvs/svn. Thank you very much.

    I hope you don’t mind that I’m not christian, though. But merry christmas to you too! 🙂
