GNOME 42 Console app

How can I get the new console app for my GNOME desktop? I can’t find it in the Software app, and not via dnf either. On Fedora 36, I’m happy with gnome-terminal, just curious.


Should be in the repos:

 sudo dnf info gnome-console

sudo dnf install gnome-console

Thank you. Now, what is the command to invoke it? I would like to set a keyboard shortcut, but “gnome-console” is not there.

$ sudo dnf repoquery -l gnome-console | grep bin

On your system, since it’s installed, you can do:

rpm -q gnome-console | grep bin

gnome-console is also placed into the applications so you can launch it from the app menu as well.

Thank you. I have now set my keyboard shortcut for a terminal to ‘kgx’ and it works!
