Fedora 22 | My very first post install guide


All things I find online pertaining this, all say the same: UPDATE YOUR SYSTEM!!

$ sudo dnf update

First time I did this, only hours from the release, I had 92mb of updates. Pretty awesome stuff! 😀


BTW: I love the musicality and coolness YUM has. dnf is sooo much lamer, but oh well.

2. Java & git

$ sudo dnf install git java-1.8.0-openjdk

3. Install Flash

Let’s add the repos first
For 32bit

$ sudo dnf -y install http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm

Or for 64bit

$ sudo dnf -y install http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm

Import the keys

sudo rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux

And let’s insntall flash. Finally…

$ sudo dnf install flash-plugin

4. Google Droid Fonts
Normaly I would install TrueType fonts, but for the time being, and since it’s not as linear as in debian based distros, I opted to install google fonts.

$ sudo dnf install google-droid-*

Extra suppport for compressing and decompressing files


$ sudo dnf install unace unrar p7zip p7zip-plugins

5. Multimedia

$ sudo dnf install libbluray-bdj libmad0 mpeg2dec mpegdemux \
libmpeg3-2 libmpeg2-4 liba52-0.7.4 libquicktime2 libmp4v2-2 faad \
lame flac mpeg3-utils icedax vlc

6. Internet stuff

Firstly, the p2p goodies and ftp support

$ sudo dnf install transmission filezilla

IM Stuff

$ sudo dnf install pidgin-data pidgin-themes xchat

GIMP extras

$ sudo dnf install gimp-data-extras

After this just reboot your machine

$ sudo reboot

    Hum the reboot command is not the best way… ” sudo shutdown -r now ” should be prefered!

      1. Sebastien says:

        ” reboot ” is like pressing reset button on the computer and data loss or system instability can occur. The ” shutdown ” command sends a signal to all process to tell the system that it’s going to go down, in this way file can be saved and process correctly stopped, the ” -r ” option is for reboot after the shutdown and ” now ” because de command needs a time parameter.

    1. jesus! my bad. \: I had the correct command on gedit, but after checking the packages, I only copied those instead of the complete lines. thanks for the heads up and for dropping by.
