Ticket #8913 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Possibility to start Headless from the/a GUI
|Reported by:||mduft||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
Since the VirtualBox GUI is giving me headaches currently (another bug), i switched to running headless vms (which is better anyway, as a X server crash will not tear down my vms). However i miss the possibility to conveniently start and stop vms, and connect to their VRDE server.
Any chance to get buttons for this in the normal GUI?
In the meantime, i have written a small script, which may (or may not) help others with the same problem, or may even be the start of a solution (naaa... :)). it's public domain, so, anybody, just take it ;)
how it works: create two shortcuts (panel, desktop) to the script, one passing 'manager' as argument, which will start the script in manager mode (which allows to start/savestate headless vms), and one passing 'vrdemanager' as argument, which will start the script in VRDE manager mode (which allows you to spawn rdesktops for all VRDE servers currently active in running vms (headless or not...).
