For some cases, it would be convenient if the ThinLinc client remembered the
last n servers it has connected to. The servers could be presented in a dropdown
box similar to the one in Mozilla (for the URI field).
This would be convenient for example for support personel using ThinLinc to
connect to servers located at several different customers. This applies to both
Borås Sjukhus (which has requested the feature), and to ourselves.
We should consider generalizing this bug: Provide a profile manager that can
handle different settings for different servers as well.
It could be implemented as a separate application, calling tlclient.
VMware has an interesting feature: The configuration files for the virtual
machines are executable, and begins with:
This could perhaps be useful with tlclient as well: You could have several
different config files, and by executing these, you'll bring up the client with
the defined settings.
The solution with #!/usr/bin/vmware doesn't work, because /usr/bin/vmware is a
shell script. We will have the same problem with tlclient.
"#!/usr/bin/env vmware" works.
Since we have implemented bug 2618, this functionality is basically available. We might want to consider some GUI manager tools, though.
See bug 5503 for simply having a list of recently used servers, without a connection to any other settings.
