Exist 3 way, install from a thirdparty repository here (easy way), make a rpm, or compile variety..

Make you own rpm rebuilding from the src.rpm


yum install @development-tools

yum install fedora-packager wget

usermod -a -G mock your_user_name



wget -c

rpmbuild --rebuild variety-0.4.20-1.fc21.src.rpm

Now you can found your rpm in /home/your_user_name/rpmbuild/RPMS/

su -c "yum install $HOME/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/variety-0.4.20-1.fc20.noarch.rpm

How to compile?

Install all build dependencies

yum intall python-devel python-setuptools python-distutils-extra python-beautifulsoup4 python-configobj pyexiv2 intltool python-imaging-devel wget

Install all dependencies

yum install python python-beautifulsoup4 python-configobj python-imaging pyexiv2


Download the source code

wget -c

Extract the source code:

tar xzvf $HOME/variety_0.4.20.tar.gz -C $HOME

Now compile

cd variety
python install

Packages libappindicator-gtk3 python2-pycurl python2-requests pygobject3-devel were also required (Although my box was running Fedora 29).

FranciscoD_ gravatar image says there are packages for Fedora/Redhat. The package is not in the Fedora repositories. Also, please check to see if it'll work with your desktop environment, especially if you're using Gnome3
