Fedora Workstation Setup

A couple of years ago I installed Fedora on my laptop. And honestly I haven't looked back since, I absolutely love my Fedora desktop. This post is just a list of commands I use to install my applications after a fresh Fedora install, for my own deteriorating memory.

sudo dnf -y install$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm
sudo dnf update

# DNF Install

Note: bind flameshot gui to what ever keybind in Gnome settings. Config command is flameshot config

Note: Peek requires "GNOME on Xorg", at time of writing, to work.
