TigerVNC on Mac OS X with homebrew to check why a Screen Sharing.app connection fails.

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/18

Two installation options for TigerVNC:

The [WayBackTigerVNC  viewer gives a bit more details on failing VNC connections than the stock OSX Screen Sharing.app does: after performing the logon, the connection would just stall, but TigerVNC would should  “write broken pipe (32)” after the logon. Most of the linked search results indicated the VNC server was having a state problem.

So I restarted the VNC server, after which connections could be made again in both tools.

Mac OS X beyond Yosemite: Ctrl-Click to add/remove an item from a selection fails in Windows on VMware Fusion

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/08/03

Somewhere after Yosemite, braindead Mac OS X forcibly maps “Ctrl+Click” to right-click. In past versions, you could disable but those days have gone.

This means that inside Windows on VMware Fusion, you cannot add/remove items to/from a selection any more (for instance in the Windows Explorer).

Various workarounds turned up in my Google Search, but only this one works:

Holding down CTRL + OPTION together and LEFT CLICKING will do this.

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/04/16

Learn one way to change Excel’s Control-U shortcut to the easier-to-use F2 (which also matches the Windows’ shortcut).
