Avahi Screenlet is a screenlet that can browse services advertised by Avahi or Zeroconf, and launch applications that use them.
Avahi Screenlet is a screenlet that can browse services advertised by Avahi or Zeroconf, and can launch configurable applications to use those services. It requires the Avahi daemon and its Python bindings to be installed. It recycles a lot of code from Sebastien Estienne's service-discovery-applet for the GNOME Panel, and uses icons from the Black & White GNOME icon theme (icons can be replaced with your own if you wish).

It has a small bug in that the very first time it's started, it won't find any services. You can work around this by starting it, placing it where you like, setting it to the widget layer, etc. and then quitting it. The next time you start it, it will discover services.

Note that while it can ask for required information for most services, it cannot for VNC. This is because the VNC viewer does not allow you to specify a password on the command line. You can configure the VNC viewer to pop up a password dialog with the option "-xrm '*passwordDialog: true'". This is configured by default.

Avahi
