Linux How To – Install BSD’s EasyEditor on CentOS 7
Easy Editor (ee) is one of my favourite built-in utilities from FreeBSD. It’s my preferred text editor (vs vi, vim, nano, pico etc). Thankfully it is easy enough to install it on CentOS 6 and 7 (tested on 2018.03.18).
1 – Prerequisites
Firstly, you’ll need to install some prerequisites:
yum install libX11 libXdmcp
This command should install a total of 4 things.
2 – Fetch the .rpm installer
3 – Install it
rpm -Uhv easyedit-1.5.0-2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm
If there are any missing dependencies, try running “yum install …” (replace “…” with the names of the missing dependencies).
