Please support my work and GPL open-source software by buying the donation version of this program called aSPICE Pro! Please report any issues to me through the “Send email" button in Google Play before writing a review.
If aSPICE doesn't work for you, before writing a review, please post your question in the forum:
If you need an VNC viewer, please search for aSPICE's sister project bVNC in Google Play. In addition, an RDP client named aRDP is part of the same project. Finally, if you need .vv file support or are an oVirt, RHEV, or Proxmox user, you can check out Opaque VDI on Google Play as well.
If your mouse pointer is not in sync with where you tap, you can use "Simulated Touchpad" input mode, or better, you can add an "EvTouch USB Graphics Tablet" to your virtual machine (when it's powered off) and then power it on. To add the Tablet:
- If configuring through virt-manager, Go to the View->Details section, and select Add Hardware->Input->EvTouch USB Graphics Tablet.
- If running your virtual machine on the command-line, you need an option similar to: "-device usb-tablet,id=input0"
