Hi Team,

I've installed gns3 in suse 12.3 with repository installation. Installed dynamips also successfully.

Tried to open normal xterm console it didn't open. So, opted for konsole terminal. Configured below command in preferences of GNS3,
/usr/bin/konsole --new-tab -p tabtitle=%d -e telnet %h %p >/dev/null 2>&1 &

But no konsole opens, instead it throws error saying,
Console /usr/bin/konsole --new-tab -p tabtitle=R1 -e telnet localhost 2000 >/dev/null 2>&1 &: No such file or directory

I've installed telnet also.

Could you please help me out on how to configure and use suse konsole terminal.

Regards,
Anurag

Different varieties of linux come with different console programs. Konsole is usually found in a KDE environment, but can be run in one of the Gnome alternatives. I don't know what SUSE uses, but I suspect it is NOT KDE.

So you will have to install Konsole if you want to use Konsole (and I believe Konsole is the best, so it is probably worth doing)

I'd start with a google search of something like "how to install konsole on suse"

Good luck

Hi,

I'm using OpenSuse 12.3 KDE 64bit OS. Could you tell me how to configure the konsole launch GNS3 routers configuration.

Regards,
Anurag

Ok. Start by finding out where konsole lives - the following command should do it:

Code:
which konsole


If you get no reply, then konsole is not installed (or not installed properly) on your system (so install it before continuing). Otherwise you will get a reply something like:
/bin/konsole

Whatever you get as the reply, go back to GNS3 and edit the line:

/usr/bin/konsole --new-tab -p tabtitle=%d -e telnet %h %p >/dev/null 2>&1 &

and replace the /usr/bin/konsole in this command with the result you got from the "which konsole" command. And don't forget to save it.

Hi,

I've tried above command to launch the terminal, but unfortunately the konsole opens and closes immediately. Please find below the attachments of settings configured in preferences.

Could you pls tell me what could have went wrong?

Let's go back to the previous post where I said

So how about you show me the output of the command:
Code:
which konsole

Good. Now the next steps are:

1. What happens when you enter the command /usr/bin/konsole at the default commadn prompt? Does konsole open? IF not, then there is something wrong with your konsole install. If konsole opens and all is well, try step 2.

2. Open GNS3, create a topology with one router, start the router. Hover the mouse over the router to check the port number that the console is using - probably 2101.

Now try this command from the default shell

/usr/bin/konsole --new-tab -p tabtitle=R1 -e telnet 127.0.0.1 2101

[replace 2101 with a different port number if you found your router was using a different port]

If both these tests work, then GNS3 should work too. After that I'm out of ideas.

Hi,

I've tried the step 2 mentioned above since step 1 works fine.
Still, the console is showing issue as mentioned earlier in post. Please find the screenshots below of the settings I've done,

I didn't mean for you to change the Terminal command settings, I meant for you to:
Quote:
try this command from the default shell

/usr/bin/konsole --new-tab -p tabtitle=R1 -e telnet 127.0.0.1 2001

As in open up a command prompt in the default shell (I don't know what it is in SUSE) and enter the command:
/usr/bin/konsole --new-tab -p tabtitle=R1 -e telnet 127.0.0.1 2001

BUT of course, you enter this command AFTER you have the router running in GNS3.
