Small Linux Installs

1 minute read


I plan to use this page as a reference for small programs I like to install on my distro’s for everyday use or just to mess around with. For now, my copy paste is:

sudo dnf install nmap bleachbit p7zip vlc


To Resolve:

  1. Install specific programs
# Network scanner
sudo dnf install nmap 

# Cleaner
sudo dnf install bleachbit 

# I like to run it once via GUI and then you can run the following from the terminal
bleachbit -c --preset

#As with almost any command, type bleachbit -h or --help to get a list of full options.

# 7zip
sudo dnf install p7zip

# Media player
sudo dnf install vlc

# Play games
sudo dnf install steam

# Virtualize
sudo dnf install VirtualBox

# Good for customizing your GRUB menu at boot
sudo dnf install grub-customizer
  1. Next, to move from MediaMonkey on Windows, we install an application called Clementine

a. Install media codecs (Fedora in this case)

sudo dnf install gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-bad-free-extras gstreamer-plugins-bad-nonfree gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-ffmpeg gstreamer1-libav gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free-extras gstreamer1-plugins-bad-freeworld gstreamer1-plugins-base-tools gstreamer1-plugins-good-extras gstreamer1-plugins-ugly gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free gstreamer1-plugins-good gstreamer1-plugins-base gstreamer1

b. Install Clementine:

sudo dnf install clementine

c. Audio was too quiet. I had all the volumes up on max and it was still quiet. To Fix, open a terminal and type:


#Type: F6
Choose your device and press up. It was set to 20% for some reason.
#NOTE: Some songs still wouldn’t play, you may have to install “gstreamer-0_10-fluendo-mp3” and “gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good”

  1. To install Windows applications, install a program called “WINE” to emulate Windows. I will probably post more on this at a later date.

  2. Install other DE’s (desktop environments)

sudo dnf install @mate-desktop
sudo dnf install @xfce-desktop
sudo dnf install @lxde-desktop
sudo dnf install @cinnamon-desktop
