hello , am using fedora 23. I know that cli applicaion isn't showing , thats not the problem

the problem is that gnome-software doesn't show all gui apps for example : deluge the reason for that deluge doesn't have an appdata appdata is information about software like description and screenshot etc. more than half of applications aren't showing because it don't have appdata.

I tried the solution here

but it didn't work

if typed in $ gsettings list-recursively first-run false check-timestamp int64 1453506367 compatible-projects ['GNOME', 'KDE', 'XFCE'] download-updates true require-appdata false <<< the important part extra-sources @as [] prompt-for-nonfree true security-timestamp int64 0 install-timestamp int64 0

note : in ubuntu , gnome software center shows all apps. the problem is only in fedora.

Use yumex or yumex-dnf, as Gnome software is still up for more tweaking as it is not a finished product yet

yumex uses the old yum-deprecated instead of dnf , so it have a saperate reposotories metadata whice is painfull to download because its about ~70mb

yumex-dnf freezes sometimes if search for packages , look at the video it will freeze if you search for python

Gnome software works great on ubuntu and it shows all gui programmes , so it should work on fedora also don't forget they are the inventors of packagekit\gnome-software

The yumex downloads compressed versions of the metadata and at most it is the fastest and micro-manageable of installing apps on fedora. Also yum commands now redirect to dnf so it is still invoke cli = 38mb~ + 16mb~ = 47mb~ yumex= 10-16mb~ + 4-8mb~ = 18mb yumex-dnf= runs in the background and seems to be redownloading metadata for every small reason Gnome-Software= a beautiful reload icon but it uses the same MB as cli when monitored

"Not a finished product" but it's the default interface in a release version? Why????
