  1. Excellent progress.

    Looking at how you’re using the MRU stuff I’d say you probably need to install a URI handler for vnc:// which would allow a person to select the connection from the Places menu and have it do the right thing.


  2. John I have to tell you how awesome your work has been on TSclient and Vinagre. Picking up maintainer-ship and cleaning up TSclient made it almost perfect with rdeesktop 1.5. How do I convince you to (properly, as compared to my hackjob) integrate SeamlessRDP and ZeroConf discovery in TSclient? And RDP support in Vinagre, that would rock too 😉

    All the best!

  3. Hi, folks. Thanks for your comments.

    After GNOME 2.22, i’ll spend my efforts in RDP support. So, i don’t plan to enhance tsclient anymore. My idea is: Vinagre is going to be a better tsclient 🙂


  4. Great looking start!

    This app looks to be a great addition for the Network Admin (as well as others), especially with the RDP support. I have been using a program called Gnome-RDP that I don’t think is still being developed. It works but needs improvement. Also, look at a product called Visionapp Remote Desktop at for some inspiration.

    One question:
    – Is it possible with VNC to do scalable windows? I think UltraVNC does this in their windows client..can we do it in Linux?


  5. Hi John,
    Vinagre looks great! Congrats!
    One question? Does it support scaling? Sometimes the screen resolution is smaller than the server so scaling the screen is very useful.
