I haven't read through this whole thread, but
I miss immediately the
following, two usual packages for seamless integration of openSUSE
with Windows (to run Winapps):
So, in which pattern should they end?
Somewhere in the default desktop(s) installation together with FreeNX
We do not have rdesktop, tsclient, FreeNX in a pattern. Would it make
sense to have a new one? Or add them as "optional, not installed by
default" to the X11 pattern?
Personal I've also experienced that *iscan is the
best package to get
full support out of Epson ADF or Photo/Film adapters scanners. For one
or another reason iscan has lacked a menu entry/launcher with an icon!
that in the list already?
Well, not in the initial lists of this thread, which I now see were
limited to the "core" installation.
The packages rdesktop and iscan, but tsclient(!) are found in both
tsclient version 0.140, as a common frontend for RDP, VNC and ICA, looks
to require also the ICAclient, which again require libldapskk.so.0
That's bad - ICAclient is Non-OSS ;-(
tsclient 0.140 that requires ICA was/is the SLED10 version.
There is a now a newer tsclient 0.148 for rdesktop, vncviewer, wfica and
xnest for downlaod from
both as rpm, src.rpm and tar.gz. I just upgraded the rpm from 0.140 to
0.140 on openSUSE 10.1, and it looks to work ok, and I'll suggest this
The current free NX server is version 1.5 and the knx client is version 0.1
I will suggest as optional to also have available the newer, non-OSS but
Free NoMachines versions
NX Free Edition for Linux Release: 2.1.0-7
NX Client for Linux
I've installed and tested this client on openSUSE 10.1 and it looks to
Yes, I think it would make sense to have a new pattern, maybe like "Thin
client computing", default or optional for the desktop installation.
Grouping all these related packages together (vnc, rdesktop, tsclient,
NX servers and clients, others) make them easy to discover or find.
On the current 10.1 installed Gnome/KDE merged Program menu, one i.e
find again these entries
Internet>Citris ICA client
Internet>More Programs>ICA PNA menus and Terminalserver-client
Internet>!M NX client for Linux>NX clients and tools
System>External access>KNX and KRDC
(still I would like the old program menues as an optional selection
during desktop setup if possible)
I expect iscan
still lacks a menu entry for iscan, even it use to have a
nice image after startup from the terminal.
Please file a bugreport,
Yes, I'll do. iscan should naturally get an Program menu entry located into
Graphic>Scanning> where Kooka and Xsane are found
