Disable Hidden Menu

Adrian Owen

I renamed

/var/lib/tomcat8/webapps/guacamole/app/client/templates/client.html

To

/var/lib/tomcat8/webapps/guacamole/app/client/templates/client.html.old

 

And restarted tomcat8

 

But hidden menu still appears?

 

How to disable it?

 

Many thanks, Adrian

Adrian,
A couple of issues, here:

- Moving files out of the way in Tomcat like that isn't a very reliable way to make changes, since Tomcat will likely, at some point, re-deploy the web application and wipe out your changes.  It looks like moving that file and restarting doesn't necessarily trigger the redeploy of the original file, but it's still not a very reliable method for doing that.

- The client.html file is not the file responsible for the appearance of the hidden menu.  That code is buried in the app.js file that contains all of the other JavaScript code for Guacamole.  So, I would not expect moving this file out of the way to actually disable this menu, or at least not only disable the menu - it will probably cause other problems.  The fact that you're not seeing any changes after moving it probably has to do with caching on client, server, or both.

- I do not believe there is currently a way to disable the hidden menu.  Maybe you can add some detail about why you want to hide it, and you can also open a JIRA issue to request that as an enhancement, if you like, but it would probably be good to discuss a little further, here, and see what you're trying to accomplish and why.

Regards,
Nick

Hi Nick,

 

Thanks for you explanation.

 

The reason is: Users are not allowed Clipboard access to remote computers.

 

Disabling Guacamole hidden menu, and ‘Browser Clipboard access’ meets the requirement.

 

 

Thanks, Adrian

What type of systems are you connecting to on the remote side?
