I don't know how.I read the Fedora documentation, and it says that I use packagekit. But I can't find the software 'packagekit' in the installation.

There are different tools. You can begin with "Software". Just press the "Super" key (ie Windows key) and enter software, a white bag icon appears. Click on it. Note : this tool allows to access only on a part of the software catalogue.

You can use the Terminal console too. Enter dnf search <key words> then when you find the package/software you want run sudo dnf install <package name>.

If you want extra softwares like vlc, kodi, virtualbox, audio&video codecs... you need to install the RPMFusion Repo.

Thanks man. I probably will need RPMFusion Repo to watch movies in 'Videos'. I need video codecs.

Fedora provides free codecs. From the RPMFusion, you will find mainly the non-free codecs. For example, you can add mp3, aac plugins to audacious, install audacity-freeword (embedded with mp3...), and all the gstreamer-plugins.

You can have a look directly from the repo list : free and non-free.

I downloaded RPMFusion Repo. I still can't find the codec I am looking for.
