       remote-viewer - a simple remote desktop client

       remote-viewer [OPTIONS] -- [URI]

       remote-viewer is a simple remote display client. The supported protocols are SPICE and

       Starting remote-viewer without URI will open a simple dialog with an entry and a list of
       previously successfully accessed URI.

       The URI can also point to a connection settings file, see FILE section for a description
       of the format.

       The following options are accepted when running "remote-viewer":

       -h, --help
	   Display command line help summary

       -V, --version
	   Display program version number

       -v, --verbose
	   Display information about the connection

       -z PCT, --zoom=PCT
	   Zoom level of the display window in percentage. Range 10-200.

       -f, --full-screen=<auto-conf>
	   Start with the windows maximized to fullscreen.

	   If the argument 'auto-conf' is given, the remote display will be reconfigured to match
	   at best the client physical monitor configuration on initialization, by enabling or
	   disabling extra monitors as necessary. This is currently implemented by the Spice
	   backend only.

       -t TITLE, --title TITLE
	   Set the window title to TITLE

	   Use the SPICE controller to initialize the connection with the SPICE server. This
	   option is used by the SPICE browser addons to allow web page to start a client.

	   Print debugging information

       -H HOTKEYS, --hotkeys HOTKEYS
	   Override the default hotkey bindings with HOTKEYS. Where HOTKEYS is
	   <action1>=<hotkey1>,<action2>=<hotkey2>... Valid actions are: toggle-fullscreen,
	   release-cursor, smartcard-insert and smartcard-remove. Examples:



	   Note that hotkeys for which no binding is given are disabled, specifying an empty
	   string disables all hotkeys.

       -k, --kiosk
	   Start in kiosk mode. In this mode, the application will start in fullscreen with
	   minimal UI. It will prevent the user from quitting or performing any interaction
	   outside of usage of the remote desktop session.

	   Note that it can't offer a complete secure solution by itself. Your kiosk system must
	   have additional configuration and security settings to lock down the OS. In
	   particular, you must configure or disable the window manager, limit the session
	   capabilities, use some restart/watchdog mechanism, disable VT switching etc.

       --kiosk-quit <never|on-disconnect>
	   By default, when kiosk mode is enabled, virt-viewer will remain open when the
	   connection to the remote server is terminated. By setting kiosk-quit option to "on-
	   disconnect" value, virt-viewer will quit instead.

       A key binding combination is described by a series of key strings seperated by '+' that
       must be pressed together in order to activate the associated action.

       It must be composed of modifiers (shift, ctrl or alt) and a non-modifier key. For example,

       remote-viewer connection file is of INI file format, with a mandatory [virt-viewer] group
       and "type" key.

       Opening a file with the following content will start remote-viewer in fullscreen and
       connect to the host "betsiboka" using the SPICE protocol:
