Fedora Day Two: Customisation

Filed under

So now I’ve got my Fedora 18 machine all up and running from Day One, and I’m now ready to get some work done, and oh what a busy day it’s been. As I mentioned yesterday, the default look of Fedora leaves a lot to be desired, so I’ve been busy working away to get my OS looking and running how I like it.

Installing software

I used a number of sources to get my software loaded up on Fedora. I did of course use the package manager that’s bundled in, simply called “Software” which does an ok job. But I found the search feature to be poor, the whole thing a little dated and generally rubbish to be honest. I personally prefer to install applications by CLI (Command Line Interface) anyway, so this wasn’t a deal breaker for me.
