    Unhappy CLI Companion installation in Ubuntu 19.04 fails - python-vte missing

    Hello!
    Unfortunately the wonderful terminal tool CLI Companion https://launchpad.net/clicompanion is no longer maintained but I have not found another terminal tool that can save/store some favourites/bookmarks of often used commands and has GUI.

    I tried to install the deb-file in Ubuntu 19.04 from Launchpad (https://launchpad.net/clicompanion/1..._1.3-1_all.deb) and failed:
    Code:
     sudo dpkg -i clicompanion_1.3-1_all.deb
    Selecting previously unselected package clicompanion.
    (Reading database ... 242806 files and directories currently installed.)
    Preparing to unpack clicompanion_1.3-1_all.deb ...
    Unpacking clicompanion (1.3-1) ...
    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of clicompanion:
    clicompanion depends on python-vte; however:
    Package python-vte is not installed.

    dpkg: error processing package clicompanion (--install):
    dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
    Processing triggers for gnome-menus (3.32.0-1ubuntu1) ...
    Processing triggers for desktop-file-utils (0.23-4ubuntu1) ...
    Processing triggers for mime-support (3.60ubuntu1) ...
    Processing triggers for man-db (2.8.5-2) ...
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    clicompanion

    The "python-vte" package was removed from the main repository and I could not find a PPA for it. Maybe the missing python-vte is the culprit for the installation error. Can anybody help in any way?

    Thanks!

    Re: CLI Companion installation in Ubuntu 19.04 fails - python-vte missing

    I have installed cli-companion which still runs on Ubuntu 16.04.
    However I decided to adopt different tools for the same purpose
    to achieve similar functionality.

    I do not know if Actiona is available in Ubuntu 19.04.
    https://jmgr.net/

    It is under category Accessories.
    Using the GUI you can create an external ini file to allow command strings to be selected (including variables).
    Through the GUI build a sequence of actions (they are Qt objects or widgets) some of which are listed below ...

    Windows - Message Box
    Windows - Data input
    Windows - Multi data input
    Device - Key
    System - Command
    Internal - Code
    Internal - Console
    Data - Read INI file
    Data - Write clipboard

    There may be others I have forgotten.


    For example

    select and build command string
    write output to clipboard
    launch command gnome-terminal
    target gnome-terminal window
    paste using Key Shift+Ctrl+V
    run using Key Enter

    It is quite a versatile tool which you can use for many automation tasks.

    At the end you can run built scripts using notation

    actexec myscript.ascr


    Linux downloads here ...

    Actions list ...

    You can also write javascript functions in a Codebox.
