what the prerequisite for install gedit on centos 7


i just install a centos 7 in a minimal installation but i want to use gedit.

i do yum install gedit, but it seem than i need something about serveur x.

do i need inevitably to install gnome or another, and if it's not what must i do?

Best Regards

Eric

If this is a headless server then use for example 'vi' instead?

You need to install the X server to enable a graphical desktop environment or a window manager. You would not necessarily need to use Gnome, but you would need some gnome libraries--any window manager, even something very simple like TWM, would be enough.

If you don't want to do that and don't feel up to learning vi/vim (the learning curve is rather steep, but I consider it worth it in the long run), you could use nano, which is a command line program that is reminiscent of the old DOS Editor, if you have ever encountered that. You would not need to install X to run nano.

At a minimum you would be using gedit remotely (via ssh) from a workstation with an X server.

At that point, the only thing you need in addition is the gnome libraries.
