I've recently saw the "Never use Fedy" message on #fedora (Freenode) and since I plan to do a fresh install (Fedora 23) in a couple of weeks I was wondering: Where can I find easy and clear tutorials that teach the things Fedy facilitate?

These are the items in Fedy I'm particularly interested in (I assume some of those are easy as pie, but just to make sure):

  • Installing Chrome
  • Installing the Flash player
  • Installing Atom
  • Microsoft TrueType core fonts
  • Multimedia codecs
  • Skype
  • The "better font rendering" tweak

Thanks in advance,

Whatever Fedy does seems to be of high interest to a lot of people. The community should think on how to provide answers to the questions above and keep them up-to-date. Maybe as sticky questions? Or new posts and have them listed under frequently sought posts?

@galvao, were any items in your list not addressed by existing questions here?

Found most of them, but the one I predict I'll have most problems with - since it has few questions and most of them address Gnome installations (mine will be KDE) - is the font rendering.

OK, fair enough. If an existing question has good answers that don't quite work, you should comment on it; if you don't find something applicable enough, you should ask a new question about specifically that.

@galvao: For font rendering (and subpixel hinting!) you could follow this Q/A (shameless self-promotion). Hope that helps.
