Fedy, a tool for Fedora configuration


Fedora 22 is here a few hours ago, and as always happens with this and the vast majority of the main GNU / Linux distributions, the truth is that we never have everything as we like it as soon as we finish installing but in general we are going to need to add components and elements. That is why we want to introduce Fedy, a tool designed to simplify Fedora configuration as much as possible.

This application was originally called Fedora Utils and it was very good, but since then it has come a long way to become what it is today: a real swiss army knife for Red Hat developed distro users, since it not only allows us install multimedia codecs, fonts and applications but also plugins, including two very important ones such as Oracle Java or Adobe Flash.

Another interesting aspect of Fedy is to allow us configure Fedora services in order to deactivate those that are not essential, in order to obtain a more agile operation of our system, or to achieve a faster start. But that's not all, and we can also add users to the sudoers list or configure login issues (for example, if we wish we can activate the automatic login from here).

As for what comes back in Fedy 4.0, released a few hours agoIt is an interface completely rewritten in GTK3 and a new much more powerful and complete search engine, as well as a more detailed description of all the elements that we can install and configure from this utility.

For install Fedy on Fedora 22 we execute the following from a terminal window (Ctrl + Alt + T):

su -c "curl https://satya164.github.io/fedy/fedy-installer -o fedy-installer && chmod + x fedy-installer && ./fedy-installer".
