Small Linux Installs

1 minute read

Description:

I plan to use this page as a reference for small programs I like to install on my distro’s for everyday use or just to mess around with. For now, my copy paste is:

1
   sudo dnf install nmap bleachbit p7zip vlc

To Resolve:

  1. Install specific programs

    # Network scanner
    sudo dnf install nmap 
    
    # Cleaner
    sudo dnf install bleachbit 
    
    # I like to run it once via GUI and then you can run the following from the terminal
    bleachbit -c --preset
    
    #As with almost any command, type bleachbit -h or --help to get a list of full options.
    
    # 7zip
    sudo dnf install p7zip
    
    # Media player
    sudo dnf install vlc
    
    # Play games
    sudo dnf install steam
    
    # Virtualize
    sudo dnf install VirtualBox
    
    # Good for customizing your GRUB menu at boot
    sudo dnf install grub-customizer
    
  2. Next, to move from MediaMonkey on Windows, we install an application called Clementine

    • Install media codecs (Fedora in this case)
    1
    
    sudo dnf install gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-bad-free-extras gstreamer-plugins-bad-nonfree gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-ffmpeg gstreamer1-libav gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free-extras gstreamer1-plugins-bad-freeworld gstreamer1-plugins-base-tools gstreamer1-plugins-good-extras gstreamer1-plugins-ugly gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free gstreamer1-plugins-good gstreamer1-plugins-base gstreamer1
    
    • Install Clementine:
    1
    
    sudo dnf install clementine
    
    • Audio was too quiet. I had all the volumes up on max and it was still quiet. To Fix, open a terminal and type: alsamixer
      • Type: F6
      • Choose your device and press up. It was set to 20% for some reason.
      • Some songs still wouldn’t play, you may have to install “gstreamer-0_10-fluendo-mp3” and “gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good”
  3. To install Windows applications, install a program called “WINE” to emulate Windows. I will probably post more on this at a later date.

  4. Install other DE’s (desktop environments)

    1
    2
    3
    4
    
    sudo dnf install @mate-desktop
    sudo dnf install @xfce-desktop
    sudo dnf install @lxde-desktop
    sudo dnf install @cinnamon-desktop
