I looked into this a bit when you raised with it @Arun last week.
Did some more digging when you posted just now.
There are two challenges here.
- There is currently no way to run an application inside groov View.
At this stage (its on the to-do list) we cant even run an iFrame to embed web pages.
This means that its not going to be possible to run VNC Viewer inside groov View.
- Its a bit of mute point because installing VNC Viewer on the EPIC Linux system is beyond the current Linux libraries.
Here is what I get when I try and install an older version (newer is even worse) on the EPIC from the command line;
opto@lcben:~/vnc$ sudo dpkg -i gvncviewer_0.6.0-3_armel.deb
Selecting previously unselected package gvncviewer.

dpkg: error processing package gvncviewer (--install):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
Trust me, that is a LOT of failed dependencies.
In my experience, its just not going to be possible to install / build those missing missing libraries.
So, at this point, I have to call time-out.
If someone has an idea on how to install a VNC Viewer application, I’m all ears.
