#212 fixed need option to prevent VBOX protocol on first run/connect Antoine Martin onlyjob

I have a big problem with default population of VBOX sessions.

On first run/connect I have many VBOX sessions which are hardly distinguishable from applications I'd like to connect to.

One problem is that all of them are not running but if accidentally clicked VBOX is starting VM which takes significant portion of RAM. If started VM is hard to terminate until guest OS is loaded.

More specifically the problem is that VBOX virtual machine which hasn't been started yet looks like already running applications. (VMs that are not running and not even suspended are shown as sessions)

I have many VMs configured and this is cluttering menu at the same time increasing chances of accidental VM starting.

The only way to stop this behaviour that I know if to modify file

~/.winswitch/server/protocols/virtualbox.conf to make sure it have "enabled=False"

However first run of Winswitch populates all VMs (which slows down the startup) and I have to modify .conf file and restart Winswitch in order to have desirable configuration.

It would be nice if Winswitch will

  • not initialise VBOX sessions by default;
  • obey existing Configuration --> Protocols --> Virtualbox;
  • if necessary have another (new) configuration to control this behaviour.

I tried to modify the code responsible for creation of ~/.winswitch/server/protocols/virtualbox.conf with "enabled=True" but couldn't find how it is done.

Please advise.

Thank you.

#56 duplicate need a reliable way to detect the screensaver / idle session Antoine Martin Antoine Martin

This used to be done with python-xlib code in window_util but was removed as it caused segfaults. r1450 All the other approaches I have tried did not work as advertised (root window property, etc..)

There must be something in dbus that would do the job, but I can't find it documented anywhere.

#77 fixed native OSX improvements Antoine Martin Antoine Martin

Using igemacintegration it should be possible to:

  • integrate into the mac menu
  • integrate into the dock
  • prevent having 2 icons (one for python and one for our app)

There must also be away to do the auto-start on the Mac.
