    Default Remote desktop apps

    I am a little reluctant to ask questions here any more ;-) since my last question rapidly shot off into a thread about if I should have asked it anyway and how you spell favour,
    however ....

    I am using KRDC successfully but I would like to have a single app running on a
    Windows machine on my desktop. This app will not run in wine or similar but I didn't want to have a whole desktop. Is there a way of doing this.

    what do you mean by "wine or similar"?

    that is, have you tried running the application in a copy of windows
    in Virtual Box (or Xen or any of the other virtual machines available)?

    and have you have tried all possible settings in WINE, or a souped-up
    WINE like Codeweavers sells....and had no luck?

    if you _have_ tried all of those things then i think the answer to
    your question is no.

    but, maybe there is a native Linux application which is a useful
    replacement? have you looked for those? try here:

    I'm trying to run SIMS - for those who don't work in schools and are not familiar with this masterpiece, it's the sort of software
    that you have to beat to death with a stick, however ....
    ...I found seamlessrdp which seems to work fine

    :-)

    Hey there Interele,

    First off, sorry to hear you got blasted before. I've found the Suse Forum to be very good, with the posting generally of a very helpful and professional nature. I hope you stick around and get to experience the good side.

    Second, nice find on seamlessrdp - I've never heard of it before, and it looks like a great tool. I can see myself using this to run VMWare's vSphere client, which (astoundingly) they have yet to release a native Linux client for, so I always have to RDP into a windows box to manage my VMs - very annoying.

    Great find, and thanks for posting it.

    Cheers,
    Lews Therin
