Getting XFCE installed in Red Hat 7

XFCE is a requirement for some of the interactive apps, but I’m struggling to get it installed on the compute node running Red Hat 7.9.

yum install epel-release -y
yum groupinstall "Server with GUI" -y
yum groupinstall "Xfce" -y
Loaded plugins: langpacks, product-id, search-disabled-repos, subscription-manager, versionlock

This system is not registered with an entitlement server. You can use subscription-manager to register.

Warning: group Xfce does not exist.

Just wondering if anyone has any experience - googling isn’t getting me anywhere as to why the group doesn’t exist, or how to go about getting Xfce installed.


Going by individual packages rather than relying on RH groups? There are not that many of the packages needed for Xfce4, and the compute node will end up less bloated.

Yeah - that is what I have ended up doing. Thanks @gshamov.
