Gorilla Password installation on CentOS/Redhat 7 Linux

Gorilla Password safe application is not part of CentOS/Redhat 7 package repository and thus it needs to be installed manually on your Linux system. First, let’s take care of the prerequisites. Here we assume that you have already enabled EPEL repository:

# yum install tcllib tk itcl git

In the next step we are going to clone a current Gorilla Password repository using git command:

$ cd /tmp/
$ git clone https://github.com/zdia/gorilla.git

Once we get Gorilla Password sources cloned locally we can copy them into a designated directory/opt:

# cp -r gorilla/sources/ /opt/gorilla

All what remains is to create an executable script within our $PATH eg:

# echo '/opt/gorilla/gorilla.tcl' > /usr/local/bin/gorilla
# chmod +x /usr/local/bin/gorilla

All done. Now you have Gorilla Password installed on your CentOS/Redhat 7 Linux desktop. To start Gorilla Password simply execute the following linux command from your terminal:

$ gorilla
