I have installed the new version of Fedora, Fedora 18. Here is how I installed everything to make it usable.
I was having problems finding our old friends at dnmouse who made Autoten/Autoplus. So one of my friends told me about Fedorautils.
To install Fedorautils:
su -c "curl http://master.dl.sourceforge.net/project/fedorautils/fedorautils.repo -o /etc/yum.repos.d/fedorautils.repo"
su -c "yum install fedorautils"
After installation, launch Fedora Utils from
Applications > System Tools or type
fedorautils in the terminal and start installing.
Everything worked great for me. I did need to restart to have the Nvidia drivers work properly, but that is normal.
Now to install the codecs for Fedora 18.
Then you must copy them to your keys directory. Make sure you change the name on the copied file.
su -c 'cp RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-free-fedora-18 /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-free-fedora-18-x86_64'
su -c 'cp RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-nonfree-fedora-18 /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-nonfree-fedora-18-x86_64'
Now you can install your players and codecs.
su -c 'yum install gstreamer1 gstreamer1-plugins-good gstreamer1-plugins-bad-freeworld gstreamer1-plugins-ugly gstreamer1-libav vlc smplayer'
Another thing you will need is Gnome Teak Tool.
yum install gnome-tweak-tool
Gimp (I use it all the time).
yum install gimp
yum install libreoffice
Here is how to install dropbox on Fedora 18.
Found this how to over on TechnoZeal
More to come.
Sorry it took me so long to get around to this.
