Having tested out the functionality of OpenGeo Suite Community, I have installed the Linux version on my Centos 5 Server. However unlike in windows the dashboard is greyed out for Post GIS. I believe this is because the local web interface limits access due to security? where as in windows you can bypass this by loading the desktop client. I don't think you can load the local GUI without using a browser on Centos?

I read I need to run PGadmin separately, however I cannot find it in Linux when it should have installed along with the OpenGeo Suite Community?

In short how can I access the PGadmin interface? or re-install it? I found the Enterprise GUI installers do not work similarly to other posters on here.

Hi Tom. Welcome to GIS SE! What install method did you use btw? Also, is this a headless server? – R.K. Jun 10 '13 at 10:06
Hi, I used the yum repository for CentOS 5, 32 bit… Eventually it will be a headless server, however for development purposes, I would like to use PGadmin rather than sql to access the PostGIS – Tom Jun 10 '13 at 10:23
usually you'd run pgadmin on your windows box pointing it at the linux box – iant Jun 10 '13 at 11:02
Have you checked if pgadmin is at Applications > Programming? Alternatively, you could check if pgadmin is installed by running rpm -qa | grep pgadmin in your terminal. – R.K. Jun 10 '13 at 11:05
Maybe you can try installing pgadmin itself? It should be a separate package. A yum install pgadmin3 or should do the trick (Assuming you have the right repositories) – R.K. Jun 10 '13 at 11:20

Solved: It wasn't clear about the dependency requirements for pgadmin when you install it. Found the files, (wxGTK-Base-2.8.12-1.elgi386.rpm)
