I was using GMT on windows and linux mint platforms perfectly and I got impressed with it. Now I have switched to Fedora 28 and I want to continue with GMT. I am following the installation instructions given on web page.

sudo yum install GMT gshhg-gmt-nc4-all dcw-gmt

But the above command line provides an error as below:

No match for argument: gshhg-gmt-nc4-all
Error: Unable to find a match

I have seen on GMT forum and they suggested to use other rpm link instead of official:

As I am new to Fedora, can anyone help me to install GMT on Fedora.

Thank you

dnf search gmt returned the following:

sudo dnf install gshhg-gmt-* will probably install all of what you need.

Hi... thank you for your reply. this works for me and I installed the gshhg packages. But now it is not linked with GMT. Whenever I am using pscoast to use the continental boundaries. It provides an error as below.

pscoast: Could not find file [GSHHG full resolution shorelines]
pscoast: Could not find file [GSHHG full resolution political boundaries]
pscoast: No GSHHG databases available - must abort

can you help me to resolve this? Thank you

I have no idea how the program works, I just found the files in the fedora repository so you could install them.
