Fedora, like many other Linux distributions, offers a great out of the box experience, but you can tweak it to suit your own needs. In this article I will focus on some of the things that I do on my Fedora install. Let’s get started!
Update the system
First things first – update the system. We will update all the packages to the latest version available. Open a terminal and run the command:
sudo dnf update
It will ask for your root password and then show you a list of updates available and ask whether to install them or not. The installation might take some time depending on the network speed. Please note that most of the software packages that are advised to install can easily be installed with the help of Fedy. After installing Fedy it is pretty straight forward to install most of the packages (point and click procedure). That said, in the following pages I will guide you to install these packages, in most cases, through the terminal app. You guys are free to choose either way – Fedy or Terminal. If you want to learn more about Fedora, then I suggest the manual method. Fedy Installation Run the following command to install Fedy.
bash -c 'su -c "curl http://folkswithhats.org/fedy-installer -o fedy-installer && chmod +x fedy-installer && ./fedy-installer"'
Once installed, run Fedy command that will open the app. Now you can install whatever packages you need.
