I'm trying Fedora 20 after six months of using openSUSE. I wanted to know what are the repos a regular user (i.e. someone who is not tech-savvy and does not have any problem using some proprietary software if life gets easier with it) is advised to have enabled with Fedora?

For example, in openSUSE I have Oss, Update, Non-Oss, Update-Non-Oss, Packman and libdvdcss repos, since the documentation said they would not cause any conflict. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find much about repos in Fedora.

EDIT: Very useful reference about third party repositories. But I also would like to know which is a good combination of repositories for my Fedora satisfying two conditions: (1) that they don't break the system or conflict with each other, and (2) that they provide me with a decent amount of free and non free software.

RPM Fusion is the most popular for Fedora, distributing Free and Nonfree software.

Other repositories you can find here:

fedoraproject(DOT)org/wiki/Third_party_repositories?rd=OtherRepositories (replace the (DOT)with . )

You can add both RPMfusion free and non-free repos by using the command:

su -c 'yum localinstall --nogpgcheck$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm'

You may even use openSUSE repos to get the rpm of apps that u want to install.
