I am unable to install gnome-connection-manager

Post by janbaztaimoor » 2020/08/02 09:40:36

I have a Centos 7.3 system and I am still in the learning process of ins and outs of the Linux. I am trying to install gnome-connection-manager on it. I am actually looking for a SSH connection manager which is capable of opening multiple tabs and most importantly it can save that multi-tabbed session with all its states.
This is the output of the initial attempt...

```
sudo yum install gnome-connection-manager-1.2.0.noarch.rpm

```
when i tried to install python-gobject, this message was shown...

Well for a start, you're missing about 4 years of maintenance and security fixes. CentOS 7.3 is unsupported and has been since the release of 7.4 in 2017. You need to run yum update to get yourself onto 7.8 which is the current version.
gnome-connection-manager-1.2.0-1.noarch
This doesn't appear to be a CentOS supplied package and judging by its requirement for python3-gobject, is not designed to be installed on CentOS 7 at all. Where did it come from?

You can find terminator in EPEL for CentOS 7. Perhaps that would be a replacement for this? Or I've also seen mention of people using tilix but I cannot find a copy of that in any known repos so that would be in much the same situation as gnome-connection-manager.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

Have updated my kernel to latest updates

CentOS Linux release 7.8.2003 (Core)

but the problem still persists.
I am looking for a connection client which can open multiple tabs and at the end that session can be saved so that I dont have to establish connection to each device seperately.
Anyway if you are saying you havent seen something like this then there isnt.
I am marking the quesion as answwered.
Thanks for your help Trevor.

Did you look at terminator yet?

Code: Select all

[root@centos7 ~]# yum info terminator
Loaded plugins: priorities
Available Packages
Name        : terminator
Arch        : noarch
Version     : 1.91
Release     : 1.el7
Size        : 566 k
Repo        : epel/x86_64
Summary     : Store and run multiple GNOME terminals in one window
URL         : http://gnometerminator.blogspot.com/p/introduction.html
Licence     : GPLv2
Description : Multiple GNOME terminals in one window.  This is a project to produce
            : an efficient way of filling a large area of screen space with
            : terminals. This is done by splitting the window into a resizeable
            : grid of terminals. As such, you can  produce a very flexible
            : arrangements of terminals for different tasks.

Yes, I've installed and its much better for someone who's brodcasting his commands to multiple stations at the same time. Since I am working at GNS3 I need to look at the complete output of the command I issue and there is rarely any command which gives you such compact result that can be fit into the small splitted window of terminator. Plus terminator is not giving you seperate tabs for each new window, its splitting the same window into multile windws. I'll stick to Linux's bash shell. Will see if can find something that can fullfill what i want.
