Since Linphone 3.9.1 which is the latest version for Fedora is not available from official Fedora repositories, I decided to add the nucleo-linphone copr repository which is found here. "Nucleo-Linphone I right clicked on the Fedora 23 file and saved the link as a .repo file. I then opened nautilus with sudo nautilus /etc/yum.repos.d and copied the file from downloads to there. The repository works very well and Linphone 3.9.1 also works quite well. Now the question is, is there an easier way to do this right from the terminal without having to open nautilus and do the copy-paste thing to the /etc/yum.repos.d folder? Here is the nucleo-linphone. repository content.

name=Copr repo for linphone owned by nucleo

The easy way is :

  1. Open a terminal and type:
  2. sudo dnf copr enable nucleo/linphone
  3. sudo dnf install linphone

this instruction is always the same to enable a COPR repo, HowToEnableRepo, look at the right side of COPR packages page.

I used the cp command.

As root : cp /home/username/Downloads/nucleo-linphone.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/nucleo-linphone.repo

Or as sudo if sudo is enabled (that is if you are administrator)

sudo cp /home/username/Downloads/nucleo-linphone.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/nucleo-linphone.repo

Works with any repo file created through a text editor such as gedit. Easier than having to open nautilus as root.

You are right Florian, thanks for noting my typo.
