[Bug 1501747] Re: unble to launch Assist/Monitor when using vncviewer from tigervnc


cyberorg, please send us another patch that checks for some file that
the tigervnc package includes, and launches /usr/bin/vncviewer using the
tigervnc syntax in that case.

  unble to launch Assist/Monitor when using vncviewer from tigervnc

Status in Epoptes:

Bug description:
  vncviewer from tigervnc requires launching like xvnc4viewer, so may be
  test to find out which   vncviewer binary is used before launching it
  would be better.

  On openSUSE there is /usr/bin/vncviewer-tigervnc actual binary and
  /usr/bin/vncviewer is link to /etc/alternatives/vncviewer. On suse the
  attached patch would work, however it does not solve issue with other
  distributions that install vncviewer binary which is from tigervnc.

  For example on CentOS /usr/bin/vncviewer is actual binary provided by
  tigervnc. Only way I could discover if the binary comes from tigervnc
  is like this::

  if  grep TigerVNC /usr/bin/vncviewer; then
        echo  "this is vncviewer-tigervnc, using vnc4viewer parameters"
  elif grep TightVNC  /usr/bin/vncviewer; then
       echo "this is TightVNC vncviewer, using old school parameters to launch"
      echo "unknown vncviewer, using .... parameters to launch"

  Don't know python equal of this.
