You seem to have a lot of unused space on your volume group "fedora" which resides on partition /dev/sda5

To allocate more space for your logical volume "fedora-home" where your /home partition resides, you need to do the following (as root):

Please first use the commands pvs, vgs and lvs to get to know your LVM structure a little bit better. Then you can extend you "fedora-home" logical volume using:

lvextend --size=+100G --resizefs /dev/fedora/home

The 100G here is just an example.

If you want to allocat all that space to you /home partition, do the following:

vgdisplay fedora

See the number of free physical extents (Free PE) on you volume group and then extend the "fedora-home" logical volume by the same amount:

lvextend --extents=+NNN --resizefs /dev/fedora/home

where NNN is the number of free extents you saw before.

In the end managing LVM is not so hard once you get the hang of it.
