Tweaking your Fedora – FEDY

** UPDATE **

I’ve had it under great authority that lots of people are saying don’t use this tool.  While in theory it’s a great idea, you don’t really know what it’s actually downloading and as someone that doesn’t read the code for it, could well be downloading something malicious, no, I’m not saying this package does at all.

For the time being, while I investigate, please be wary using a tool like this.

** END OF UPDATE **

One of the first things I like to do after I’ve installed Fedora, is install the Tweaking tool Fedy.  If you’re unsure what Fedy is, then have a look at this page – http://folkswithhats.org/

1, install the application using this comment line

bash -c 'su -c "curl http://folkswithhats.org/fedy-installer -o fedy-installer && chmod +x fedy-installer && ./fedy-installer"'

Once, you’ve installed it, just run it and you’ll see all the options you can install from within Fedy.  It’s an easy way to install Google Chrome, Multimedia Codecs and other little things that might make your life a bit easier.  As part of the install it will install the RPM Fusion repos which contain a lot of cool stuff.

Simple 😀  Give it a go….let me know what you think of it.

  1. I took the time to read the fedy scripts. All of them. They’re quite benign, well written and I found no bad things whatsoever.
    Actually I’m quite impressed by the attention on doing things cleanly and properly, which is good news for this kind of software which usually travels the “quick and dirty” way.
