How to install PAC Manager On Fedora

PAC is a Perl/GTK replacement for SecureCRT/Putty/etc (linux ssh/telnet/… gui)… It provides a GUI to configure connections: users, passwords, EXPECT regular expressions, macros, etc.


  • Unique linux app to implement SecureCRT’s functionality (more or less!)
  • Remote and local macros
  • Remotely send commands with EXPECT regexp
  • Cluster connections!! Connections on same cluster share keystrokes!!
  • Scripting support! (vía Perl code)
  • Serial/tty connection via cu/tip/remote-tty connections!!
  • Pre/post connections local executions
  • TABS OR WINDOWS for connections!!
  • Proxy support
  • KeePass integration!
  • Wake On LAN capabilities
  • Possibility to split terminals in the same TAB!
  • Quick acces to configured connections via tray menu icon
  • Best linux GUI for ssh, telnet, sftp, rdesktop, vnc, cu, remote-tty, ftp, etc
  • DEB, RPM & .TAR.GZ packages available!!
  • More to come (ASA I find time!)
  • FREE (GNU GPLv3)

Download package from : http://sourceforge.net/projects/pacmanager/files/pac-4.0/


Install Dependency packages by using yum


# sudo yum install perl-YAML uuid-perl perl-Gtk2-GladeXML perl-Crypt-CBC perl-Socket6 perl-Net-ARP perl-Gtk2-Ex-Simple-List perl-Crypt-Blowfish perl-Net-SSH-Expect perl-IO-Stty vte tigervnc rdesktop

UPDATE: When you face issue with PAC manager Opening, please follow below steps.

First of all, install (yum or whatever method you prefer) the “Vte development” package (it’s very small, so don’t worry).
In Debian, is called ‘libvte-dev’, but in RedHat (and derivatives) I think it’s named ‘vte-devel’. So, something like:

yum install vte-devel

should work.


# wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/X/XA/XAOC/Gnome2-Vte-0.11.tar.gz
# tar xfz Gnome2-Vte-0.11.tar.gz
# cd Gnome2-Vte-0.11/
# perl Makefile.PL make

At this point, please, modify your ‘/opt/pac/lib/ex/vte64/auto/Gnome2/Vte/Vte.so’ with the newly complied one ‘blib/arch/auto/Gnome2/Vte/Vte.so’. So, do:

sudo cp -f blib/arch/auto/Gnome2/Vte/Vte.so /opt/pac/lib/ex/vte64/auto/Gnome2/Vte/
