I'm practicing GUI development and have found a tutorial using "python-glade2"(a debian package), how can I install this on my Fedora 21?

I know its possible per this package index(glade2).



The glade2 package contains a legacy version of Glade for GTK+ 2.x. Do not use it for new projects, use glade (for GTK+ 3.x) or glade3 (for GTK+ 2.x) instead. Glade is a free user interface builder for GTK+ and the GNOME GUI desktop. Glade can produce C source code. Support for C++, Ada95, Python, and Perl is also available, via external tools which process the XML interface description files output by GLADE.

Is there any issues if you use Glade3 instead of Glade2? Or it is a necessity?

As stated in the description that you cited, glade2 or glade3 packages are for developing with GTK+ 2.x libraries, but you probably want to develop with GTK+ 3.x, so you should install glade:

$ sudo yum install glade

If you want to use GTK+ 2.x, then:

$ sudo yum install glade3
