2016-04-20 14:42:16 -0600 asked a question is there a command to list applications packages only ?

is there an rpm,dnf,yum command lists packages that contain applications ONLY ? rpm -qa lists all installed packages,libraries,kernel,system stuff etc. I only want it to list applications packages for example : deluge , youtube-dl , cmus , firefox etc.

2016-04-19 05:30:17 -0600 asked a question how to choose the packages that will be included in fedora install?

In centos there is software selection , like in the attached picture image description it lets you specify exactly what packages will be installed. is there a way to do that in fedora ?

2016-04-17 02:28:11 -0600 asked a question how to save live usb session on shutdown (like on Puppy Linux?)

usb 2.0 flash stick are very slow , If you write a lot on it , it will wear out quickly . a nice feature about puppy is that if you run it live usb and shutdown the system , a dialog will appear asking you to save your changes like packages installed and customizations etc. this is good for ram because all writes are in ram and then are written to flash drive only ONCE per session when you shutdown. change are saved to sfs file and next time you boot you find all your customizations. you may ask I don't do a full install on the usb stick ? I tried and it was painfully slow maybe because of the simultaneous read and write. also tried to use live usb with persistence , it also was very slow because changes are continuously written to the usb stick , and there's hidden services that always write logs something like that. is there a way to make live-session-changes written only ONCE when shutdown instead of constantly writing to usb

yumex uses the old yum-deprecated instead of dnf , so it have a saperate reposotories metadata whice is painfull to download because its about ~70mb http://i.imgur.com/0DyTGQQ.jpg

yumex-dnf freezes sometimes if search for packages , look at the video https://youtu.be/5AkBRMs1BiA it will freeze if you search for python

Gnome software works great on ubuntu and it shows all gui programmes , so it should work on fedora also don't forget they are the inventors of packagekit\gnome-software

2016-04-16 02:29:39 -0600 asked a question how to make packagekit use the same dnf metadata ?

packagekit wastes my bandwidth by downloading separate metadata files I made a video to explain it better https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLckO...

metadata is the files that contain information about repositories. as you can see in the video I posted , the problem is that metadata files are downloaded twice.. one for dnf and one for packagekit. I have limited and slow internet connection . the repositories metadata is about 70 megabytes which is very pain full to download. the problem is that dnf and packagekit(gnome software-center) each one have I'ts own metadata , so the same metadata files are duplicated two times in two places /var/cache/PackageKit/ and /var/cache/dnf/ which wastes my internet bandwidth

in ubuntu gnome software center uses the same apt metadata , so I think the problem from fedora.

fedora 23 , gnome-software 3.18.3-1

2016-04-16 02:29:38 -0600 asked a question How can I remove all installed packages and keep only base system packages?

Instead of stripping off things i don't need , I thought it would easier to start from a minimal system and add the things I need. how to remove all package and only keep the packages in the "Minimal Install" group ? can I do it on my current fedora system?? or do I have to download the minimal fedora iso and do fresh install?

2016-04-16 02:29:38 -0600 asked a question how to show all gui apps in gnome-software ?

hello , am using fedora 23. I know that cli applicaion isn't showing , thats not the problem

the problem is that gnome-software doesn't show all gui apps for example : deluge the reason for that deluge doesn't have an appdata appdata is information about software like description and screenshot etc. more than half of applications aren't showing because it don't have appdata.

I tried the solution here
http://www.iwillfolo.com/gnome-softwa...

but it didn't work

if typed in $ gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.software

org.gnome.software first-run false org.gnome.software check-timestamp int64 1453506367 org.gnome.software compatible-projects ['GNOME', 'KDE', 'XFCE'] org.gnome.software download-updates true org.gnome.software require-appdata false <<< the important part
org.gnome.software extra-sources @as [] org.gnome.software prompt-for-nonfree true org.gnome.software security-timestamp int64 0 org.gnome.software install-timestamp int64 0

note : in ubuntu , gnome software center shows all apps. the problem is only in fedora.
