What to do after installing Fedora 25

Fedora 25

Fedora 25 has recently been available for everyone. The latest version of Fedora brings many new features but even as complete as it may seem, you always have to do something after installing Fedora 25.

Here are some of the steps we have to do to have Fedora 25 ready to work for us or to get the most out of our team. They are important steps but They are not the only ones nor are they all essentialThat will depend on our tastes and the work we do with it.

We update the system

Yes, I know that Fedora 25 has been available for a short time but there may be an important version or an update of the kernel or another program. That is why we will always run the following command after installing Fedora 25:

dnf update

Add complementary repositories

Fedora 25 has an extensive catalog of software but there are alternatives that can expand and complement this extensive catalog. One of those repositories is RPMFusion, a repository with the latest news of the most important programs that we usually use as well as the nonfree packages of the distribution. To add it we just have to write the following in the terminal:

rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-25.noarch.rpm

Install Gnome Tweak

Fedora 25 comes with Gnome by default, a pretty complete and pretty desktop despite its detractors. If we really use this desktop and we are not going to change it, Gnome Tweak is an important tool. This tool will allow us to modify certain parameters of the desktop without being an expert on the desktop. To install it, we only have to write the following:

dnf install gnome-tweak

Add accounts online

Gnome has the option of connecting with online accounts such as Google, Facebook or Twitter that will improve our experience with the desktop, in addition to receiving notifications and messages from these services directly from Gnome. This management is found in Settings–> Personal–> Online Accounts.

Add important plugins and programs

If we want to surf the internet or have certain extra functions, we have to add certain programs that will ensure the proper functioning of these tasks, such as adding a software to watch videos, browser add-ons or image editing. So we will install the following software:

dnf install vlc java-openjdk icedtea-web gimp youtube-dl unzip pidgin wine

Putting some music on Fedora 25

Spotify is a very popular music service that you surely use regularly. In Fedora 25 we can have e install an official client of this service, we just have to open the terminal and write the following:

dnf config-manager --add-repo=http://negativo17.org/repos/fedora-spotify.repo
dnf install spotify-client

Add Steam for downtime

In Fedora, as in the rest of the distributions, also we can install the official Steam client to be able to play at any time or in any dead time we have, for this we only have to open the terminal and write the following:

dnf config-manager --add-repo=http://negativo17.org/repos/fedora-steam.repo

dnf install steam

Conclusion on what to do after installing Fedora 25

These steps are important, especially the activation of the complementary repositories as well as the installation of complementary software, but there are other steps that for example web developers or programmers will value more than installing Spotify or Steam, in any case these steps are important but they are not the only ones What would you add?
