    Hi,

    I run Sabayon 15 with Chrome as my default browser, & when I select a SPICE-based console, it downloads an extension-less file rather than opening a console. I installed spice-gtk 0.28, but the behavior persists.

    What do I have to do to get this working?

    You need a spice client, for example remote-viewer (which is part of the virt-viewer codebase). On a debian based system, this should just be a
    Code:
    apt-get install virt-viewer
    away.

    I'm on Sabayon 15, there's no 'virt-viewer' in the Rigo package manager.

    I'll have to Google a bit & see if I can install it from portage somehow. Haven't ventured to such advanced setup yet.
