Fedora Day Two: Customisation

Filed under
Linux

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.

Android Marshmallow on PC Falls Flat

The Android-x86 Project eventually may become a viable operating system alternative for your desktop and laptops computers, but it's not there yet. You will have to wait a while for the developers to fix a number of failures with the latest release upgrading Android-x86 to Marshmallow 6.0.1. The developers late this summer released the first stable version of Android-x86 6.0, codenamed "Marshmallow." Android-x86 lets you run the Android OS with the Google Chrome browser on your desktop and laptop computers, rather than buying one of the qualified Chromebooks with the Google Play Store features bolted on.
