Linux News Today: Install Microsoft Fonts, Adobe Flash, Java, and Tweak Fedora 23 Linux with Fedy
Created by the skilled developer Satyajit Sahoo, Fedy (previously known as Fedora Utils) is a must have utility for all users of the Fedora Linux computer operating system.
Fedy is an open source, free, and very easy to use graphical application for your Fedora desktop. It has been designed from the ground up to let you install all sorts of software and tools that aren’t available in the default software repositories of Fedora Linux.
The latest Fedy has been updated for the recently released Fedora 23 operating system, allowing you to install things like multimedia codecs, Adobe Flash Player plugin, Microsoft TrueType core fonts, Oracle Java, as well as encrypted DVD playback.
Fedy also lets you install the latest Dropbox client, Google Chrome web browser, Hangouts plugin, and Master PDF Editor document viewer and editor. You can also use Fedy to install various themes for your Fedora 23 Linux desktop.
Moreover, the Fedy utility will allow Fedora 23 users to make their installations faster by turning off unnecessary services, as well as to enhance their desktop experience by tweaking various options and settings, such as automatic login.
System administration tasks can also be performed with Fedy in Fedora 23, as the utility makes it easy for experienced users to add certain users to the sudoers file or restrict access to specific users on the system.
