    keyword=BigBite HV GUI now in VNC wrapper

    I wrote a couple of scripts that wrap the BB HV gui in a VNC session.
    This allows multiple computers to view and manipulate the BB HVs at the
    same time (as we can with the HRS, Beamline HVs).

    Here are the new instructions. I have _not_ updated the wiki or howto.
    That needs to be done. (The instructions are pretty much the same as
    the old ones. The scripts will also try and prompt the user to do the
    right thing if there is a problem.)

    The instructions to start the GUI from scratch are now:

    Login to adev@adaql3
    type 'starg_hvgui'

    This will fire up a vnc session on display :9 and run the old 'hvgui'
    script in there. It will also open a vncviewer to that session.
    (The old 'hvgui' script was renamed 'hvgui_standalone'.)

    If you want to open another viewer, do this:

    login to adev@adaql3
    type 'hvgui'

    It will fire up another vncviewer session for you.

    Take a look at ~adev/bin/start_hvgui, ~adev/bin/hvgui for details.
