UPDATE: If you want the version for 10.6 Snow Leopard, click here.
We work with a bunch of Mac clients that also need the same ability. I was able to get it compiled and working on OSX (Intel based) with a few minor issues. I’ve had a number of requests for the compiled package and have finally been able to post it (sorry for the delay).
This is the README that I’ve included with the package:
This is the VMWare View Open Client installer package. The .pkg file is the Mac installer. The application was compiled on an Intel MacBook Pro running OSX 10.5. It may work on other OS versions, your mileage may vary.
The vmware-client.toc is the table of contents of all the files that are installed onto the machine when the package is run. The .app is a very simple AppleScript that just calls /usr/local/bin/vmware-view.sh. The rdesktop switches can be modified within this shell script. You’ll want to modify the switch that specifies the broker for your site.
The rdesktop binary is installed with this application for ease of use
though you may want to strip it out.
Current known issues:
Sound: I’ve not been able to get sound to pass through from the virtual machine back to the Mac.
Alt Key: The alt key mapping seems to work however a combination such as ALT-F4 to close a window within the VM does not work.
