Yes, back at the scene after a period of absence due to personal issues. And, guess what: back at Fedora linux too. To my core, I do think this is the distro to stick with. I really feel at home.
I was keen to try the fedora 25 beta, but decided to stick with the current stable release of Fedora.
In the previous post I acclaimed the powers and versatility of Fedy. But old habits die hard and I decided to keeo on doing stuff via the command line interface.
So let us begin . shall we?
01. All things I find online pertaining this, all say the same: UPDATE YOUR SYSTEM!!
$ sudo dnf update
02. Java & git
$ sudo dnf install git icedtea-web java-openjdk
03. Install Flash [Highly optional, imo]
Let’s add the repos first
$ 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 install flash. Finally…
$ sudo dnf install flash-plugin
04. RPM Fusion repos
One of the most important thing one can and must do to every Fedora system! ALSO works for Fedora 25 Beta!
$ su -c 'dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm'
I picked the only package I was missing and that I actually use. If I eventually need anything else to play some files, Fedora will do the favor to tell me. Also it’s the easy way.
$ sudo dnf install vlc
06. Internet stuff
p2p goodies and ftp support
$ sudo dnf install transmission filezilla
07. IM Stuff
$ sudo dnf install pidgin xchat
08. GIMP and it’s extras
$ sudo dnf install gimp gimp-data-extras
09. Extra suppport for compressing and decompressing files
$ sudo dnf install unace unrar p7zip p7zip-plugins
10. Gnome tweak tool
This will gve you a little bit more control over your gnome desktop.
$ sudo dnf install gnome-tweak-tool
After all these commands, just reboot your machine
