By default, the Fedora Linux distribution sports the GNOME desktop environment, although others are available in “Spin” downloads. If you would like to change things up and install KDE Plasma instead, the GUI can be downloaded and installed directly from Fedora’s default package repositories.
One of the best aspects of using a Linux system is that there are many popular desktop environments to choose from. If you do not like the style or behavior of yours, it is simple enough to install a different one. When it comes to the KDE Plasma desktop environment, there are a few different ways to experience it.
KeePassX is a cross platform password manager to allow users to store and organize passwords by keeping them safe using advanced encryption techniques.

Plymouth is an application originally developed by Red Hat and later adopted basically by all the most commonly used Linux distributions. The software runs very early in the boot process, and provides eye-candy animations which accompany the user until he is prompted to login into the system. When Plymouth is used, boot messages are hidden, although they can be visualized simply by clicking the
esc key. Some users, however, may prefer to visualize boot messages by default, and avoid any animation.
Developed by Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, and originally meant to be used on the latter, the Snappy package manager is a free and open source software used to install and manage snap packages.

If you’re running Fedora Linux inside a VirtualBox virtual machine, installing the Guest Additions software will help you get the most out of the system. VirtualBox Guest Additions will give the machine more capabilities, such as a shared clipboard with the host system, drag and drop file transfer, and automatic window resizing.
This makes copying data to and from a host system much more convenient. It also changes the VM’s resolution automatically when its window is resized, so you don’t need to change it manually. Guest Additions will work with just about any Linux distribution, but instrutions can differ because of dependencies and package managers.
In this guide, we’ll be going over the step by step instructions to get VirtualBox Guest Additions installed on Fedora Linux. With these instructions, it doesn’t matter what host system you’re using, as long as the virtual machine is running Fedora. This guide assumes that you’ve already installed Fedora in the VM correctly.
