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