Just wanted to make a quick note of all the applications I install by default on my Fedora laptop to get it fully functional.

Fresh installation of Fedora 19 x64, then:

sudo yum update -y

sudo yum groupinstall “MATE Desktop” -y

sudo yum install cairo-dock thunderbird rdesktop fusion-icon gcc kernel-headers kernel-devel sshfs xdm samba samba-client samba-winbind-clients gvfs gvfs-smb htop compiz-plugins-extra compiz-xfce evince libreoffice gimp gnote brasero xfce4-mixer minicom -y

sudo rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm

sudo rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm

sudo yum install akmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs vlc mozilla-vlc gvim nmon -y

Install Steam:

cd /etc/yum.repos.d

sudo wget http://spot.fedorapeople.org/steam/steam.repo

sudo yum install steam -y
