Hi guys,

I use Fedora 16 LXDE and I ahve some problems to find "add/remove" software, I am using Yum Extender instead, but I do not like it much, is there any way to have "add/remove" software in LXDE like in Gnome 3? Thanks

You can install gnome-packagekit if you don't like Yumex.

# su 
# yum install gnome-packagekit

LXDE does come with yumex as default package manager.

Applications Menu -> Administration -> Add/Remove Software

It's not there?

If you want to remove software using Yumex. Open Yumex, and select the radio button 'installed'. Scroll down and find the software you want to remove, and select it. A small circle with a red 'x' will appear next to the selected software. Hit 'apply' and you are done. Yumex will proceed to remove the offending software.

I've just upgraded from fc19 to fc20 and found that the "Add/Remove Software" application is missing from the Adminstration menu.

I've tried: "# yum install gnome-packagekit"

But gnome was already installed and the result was "nothing to do".

I'm using Cinnamon for my desktop - I tried reverting to Gnome classic - still the same issue.

Any ideas folks ;)

F20 in still in alpha. Strange problems are expected. You could try "yum reinstal ..."
