    Fedora Set-Up Guides

    Fedora is maintained by the FedoraProject. Start here to grab your copy. You may want to spend some time reading the Official Documentation such as the F28 or F27 Installation Guide, Release Notes and Common Bugs.

    Fedora is Free & Open Source by design. Many users want the codecs they're used to, so they want the addition of packages offered in RPMFusion
    RPMFusion - includes many of the codecs and packages that you'll find useful for getting the most from Fedora. Most members set up both the "free" and "non-free" versions.

    Speaking of codecs, in F28 you'll want to check out this thread for help with your video viewing.

    We think you'll also find Gnome Tweak Tool a great addition to Gnome.

    Gnome Tweak Tool for F28 & F27 - (Advanced Settings)

    While not a Guide, if you're using Gnome3, we recommend installing gnome-tweak-tool to get the most out of Gnome. Be sure to check out all the Extensions available to you.

    Sadly, gnome-tweak-tool is not installed by default, but may be easily installed using the normal package installation process (gui: Software) or it can be installed directly from a terminal using the following command. [ sudo dnf install gnome-tweak-tool ]

    Scripts For F28 & F27:

    Fedy - A modular and scriptable utility to install codecs and proprietary software, add & manage repos and much more, also saves downloaded files. Click on the fedy link to go to it's site and follow the simple instructions. That should install Fedy and the necessary repos. Once it's installed, open a terminal and type "fedy". That will trigger a series of additional packages to enable it.

    LaKing Fedora Workstation - A new addition to the scripts. Check out the "Read Me" for many of the details.
