Tool: PAC Connection Manager – The best SSH Client for Linux

This post tested on Ubuntu 18.04. The latest LTS version at the moment (20.04) is not supported PAC any more due to the conflict in library Gnome2::Vte.
For later version, please use Asbru (a folk of PAC)

Step 1. Install PAC from debfile

sudo apt-file update
sudo dpkg -i pac-
sudo apt-get install libextutils-depends-perl libextutils-pkgconfig-perl pkg-config dh-make-perl apt-file libglib2.0-dev libpango1.0-dev libvte-dev libvte-2.91-dev

Step 2. Install missing packages with cpan

> install ExtUtils::PkgConfig
> install ExtUtils::Depends

Step 3. Fix the gnome2::Vte library

dh-make-perl --cpan Gnome2::Vte --build
sudo dpkg -i libgnome2-vte*.deb
sudo find /opt/pac/ -name "*" -exec rm {} +

For now, PAC supposes to work normally. To check that, lauch pac from the Terminal and check the log for more information.
