Tip: Configure hidden VMWare View settings that are not available in the IGEL Linux Setup incl. registry

Hello Folks,

you want configure a few more settings for the VMWare View client like mentioned in the following links:
Setting Frames for Real-Time Audio-Video
VMWare View Client Release Notes

…and maybe other Sources.

A couple of these settings are currently not available in the Setup/Registry provided with the IGEL Setup / UMS Profile, but how can you apply it if you need it?

Quite simple, open the IGEL Setup or the UMS Profile and browse to System->Firmware Customization -> Custom Commands -> Desktop Commands.

In the “Custom Command Desktop Final” add the following lines, this sample is for Real-Time Audio-Video Frames configuration.

echo ‘rtav.srcWCamFrameWidth=”320″‘>>/etc/vmware/config
echo ‘rtav.srcWCamFrameHeight=”240″‘>>/etc/vmware/config

Repeat this for all settings you want to deploy, the text between the ‘….’ is the parameter, the configuration will be added to the /etc/vmware/config file after a reboot. If you finished the configuration apply the settings and reboot the device. The settings should be applied now. 🙂

Attention: If you change something else via a profile or the IGEL Setup you must reboot the device to take over the configuration!

Maybe IGEL will include these configuration’s in later Firmware releases but until now (Firmware 5.04.100 / 4.13.180) they are not.

Cheers

Michael

P.S.: All configuration’s are done at your own risk!
