In this page we will talk about the SSH Lens for the Ubuntu Unity interface. The Ubuntu SSH Lens is simply a Unity plugin that allows users to use the Unity interface to search/connect to SSH sessions. This is possible thanks to the parsing of ~/.ssh/known_hosts and ~/.ssh/config files.
To install SSH Lens for Unity under Ubuntu 12.04/11.10, open the terminal and run these commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:scopes-packagers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity-lens-sshsearch
Restart now Unity with this command:
Or logout and log back in. If you encounter bugs while using SSH Lens, you can submit them here.
