Selecting SPICE console downloads a file rather than opening a console

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.
