CHAPTER 28

Installing and Removing Software

One of the fun things about running any operating system is the ability to expand it—for adding in new software over time to improve your workflow, or just for entertainment value.

Linux is blessed in this regard, because tens of thousands of software titles are available to meet just about every need. However, once you've tracked down the ideal software title, there's still one barrier to overcome: actually installing it on your system.

Installing software under Fedora isn't the same as with Windows. With Fedora, users are afforded a lot more power over what happens to their system, but this comes at the expense of needing to take a little time to understand the terminology and techniques.

In this chapter, you'll learn how to use the various tools available for managing software on Fedora; but first, we'll start with some basics of software installation.
