Re: [Question #254032]: Execute Command not working - xterm socat


Question #254032 on Epoptes changed:

Description changed to:
I have LinuxMint 17 on both client and server.  Trying to run a terminal
window through Epoptes by using the Clients: Execute: Open Terminal.  In
all cases (user-locally, root-locally, root-remotely) I get an error

$ xterm: Can't execvp socat: No such file or directory

Whoops... found the problem.  socat was not installed on the system.
after installing socat, it works fine.  Why wouldn't socat be installed
with epoptes by default? (had a similar problem with broadcasting
because x11vnc was not installed by default)

Hope this helps someone else!
