VMWare View Client 5.0 almost done...

A quick preview on VMWare View Client 5.0 on Raspberry Pi:


Now VMWare View Client 5.0 is working on RaspberryPi, SSL security options is ok also auth via RSA. PCoIP protocol seem not working at the moment, just the RPD. Not so bad for a 35$ Thin Client... :-)

    1. No, just because i didn't have a login/pass to download vWorkspaces Connector source code for Linux. I remember 2 years ago Quest software was releasing the source code for the connector v7.0. If you have access and source code (or ARM package) is still available i can give it a try.

    2. No worries, I am on to it... will be in touch shortly. The source code for the 7.2 Linux Connector is not publicly available for download but I have contacted a friend in Quest Support for info on acquiring it.

    1. i have tried to compile the package, all prerequisite is ok, but compiling:
      /usr/bin/ld: ../../lib/libqcommondata.a(crypto_data.o): Relocations in generic ELF (EM: 3)
      /usr/bin/ld: ../../lib/libqcommondata.a(crypto_data.o): Relocations in generic ELF (EM: 3)
      ../../lib/libqcommondata.a: could not read symbols: File in wrong format
      collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
      make[1]: *** [connmanager] Error 1
      make[1]: Leaving directory `/src/qrdesktop/manager'
      make: *** [release] Error 2

      Failed to build connection manager. Stopping here.

      Looking at the library included on the package:
      root@raspberry-pi:/src/lib# file libqcommondata.a
      libqcommondata.a: current ar archive
      root@raspberry-pi:/src/lib# ar -x libqcommondata.a
      root@raspberry-pi:/src/lib# ls
      crypto_data.o libqcommondata.a
      root@raspberry-pi:/src/lib# file crypto_data.o
      crypto_data.o: ELF 32-bit LSB relocatable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), not stripped

      this library is precompiled for i386, there are any way to have the source of this lib?

    3. mmm i have recompiled the appPortal:
      #apt-get install libqt4-dev --no-install-recommends
      download AppPortal: http://www.mediafire.com/?o4ofkbrwr6j2suv
      #chmod +x AppPortal
      #./AppPortal

      i think something is missing but give it a try and let me know

    4. Tested it and it launches but fails looking for pntsc. Looking at the Readme_Admin.txt there is a 'File Locations' section and none of those files exist. How have you captured this app and should it be looking within your compiled App..?

  5. Would be awesome if you could get vEMan going on the Rpi. Would be nice for managing ESX hosts and accessing Vcenter. Although i could use the web client in Vsphere5 but whats the fun in that =P

  6. Congratulations Gibbio!
    I notice this project this morning because I ever done the hole thing on an ARM board, of cause it is a commercial thin client(now in commercial use for big companies). I use scratchbox and port an Archlinux on it.all Micro&VMvare&Citrix's clients is supported. You know firefox is hard... so I use icecat instead. I think you also need a full-screen addon for your brower...
