Fedsetupguides, Fedy

Hi again,

Having my fresh 26 WS I went to the Fed Set-Up Guides and installed the Gnome Tweak Tools.

Then I went to:
"Fedy - Works with both F25 and F26. A modular and scriptable utility to install codecs and proprietary software, add & manage repos and much more, also saves downloaded files. This will download the script. You then have to open a terminal, "cd" to your downloaded location. Next, "su" as root and type "chmod +x fedy-installer", followed by "./fedy-installer" . That should install Fedy and the necessary repos. Finally, exit root temporarily and type "fedy" to give you a GUI with plenty of handy codecs."

From my terminal:

[jeb@localhost ~]$ cd
jeb@localhost ~]$ su
[root@localhost jeb]# chmod +x fedy-installer ./fedy-installer
chmod: cannot access 'fedy-installer': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access './fedy-installer': No such file or directory
[root@localhost jeb]#

Perhaps the problem is my interpretation of the sequence in the description as exemplified by my terminal entries.

Just click on "Fedy" on "Fedora Set-Up Guides" page.
When you do so, you're getting to:

To install Fedy in Fedora, open a Terminal and run the following command:
sudo sh -c 'curl https://www.folkswithhats.org/installer | bash'
It installs folkswithhats repo and fedy and ...

Find Fedy in desktop menu ...

Good luck.

Thanks thom12. And Jeb, yeah those instructions were initially provided by Fedy back when F25 was released and need to be updated a bit now. I'll change it.
