View Full Version : Install- Not full ?

9th May 2009, 07:57 PM
Hey i installed from a LiveCD what i thought would be a full install, but i guess it wasn't :-P
Anywho..im needing to know if there's a list of packages that i can install to get it up to full par. Such as the GTK theme engines that seem to be missing and disallowing me from installing ANY emerald themes and a large array of gnome / metacity themes. Also i don't have games, (but i can live w/o that xD ) Anywho...im also missing my option to edit the GDM theme. So idk whats up i go yum install gdm and thats installed so i don't know the specific package for the theme manager etc. Any help appreciated, thanks in advanced.

By design, Live CDs tend to install just the basics to get you going because the CD has so much less
space than a DVD. You usually are to install the live CD to disk, then update/install the other apps you want.
A lot of people like that because you end up with a lot less unwanted stuff, I use Live CDs sometimes to
build stripped down development machines

The changing GDM themes has been broken for quite a while try a search on the forum for the full story.

Enjoy the Choice :)

Open a terminal (http://www.fedorafaq.org/basics/#terminal) and run the following command as root (http://www.fedorafaq.org/basics/#root):
yum list available | more

Or use package kit the add/remove software gui or if you are like most of us long time fedora users Yumex as it's more mature even if the look is a bit clunky it allows more control.
yum install yumex

Enjoy the Choice :)
