Another VNC viewer alternative
Authored by: patniemeyer on Oct 11, '07 03:52:37PM

I have started using JollysFastVNC because it's very lightweight and doesn't hog cpu when it's not doing anything. My only complaint is that it's not very mature when it comes to key bindings. e.g. command-Q quits a remote application, but command-W closes the local JFVNC window. (this is maddening ;) )

JollysFastVNC Close menu patch
Authored by: dean_muc on Oct 13, '07 01:56:51AM
If you have the Apple Developer Tools installed you can change JollyFastVNC's 'close window' keyboard shortcut very easily:

right click on the application
choose '"Show Package Contents'
navigate to JollysFastVNC.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/MainMenu.nib
double clicking on the MainMenu.nib will open the file in the Interface Builder
double click on the MainMenu in the MainMenu.nib (English) window
click 'Window'
double click on 'W'
press the new shortkey (I use command-shift-W)
save the changes and quit the Interface Builder

Now you can close remote windows using command-w and JollysFastVNC windows using command-shift-w.

I have placed the modified nib file on my server so you can just copy it to JollysFastVNC.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/ to apply the change mentioned above.
