I want to install Typora (see https://typora.io/) but I don't know how to use dnf/yum to add the repository.

The given command from their site is sudo add-apt-repository 'deb https://typora.io/linux ./'

I tried: sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo 'deb https://typora.io/linux ./' but didn't work (it added the deb folder instead).

Thanks for hint! But I've stuck. Got all operations done OK on Fedora 29 WS, all paths are correct, icon is in place and showing up in applications... but nothing happens when I run it. No error messages. No processes in memory. Just nothing.

Any guess?

Sorry for that notice but that is the Debian and Derivates way like Ubuntu :

Download a binary file from here :

under terminal there is a description

>> or, download binary file x64 x86 ...

Nota : download your architecture if you don't know type in terminal uname -r

in download folder double-click and extract there :

then do :

sudo mv Typora-linux-x64 /opt/typora

follow this step :

Create the .desktop file in /.local/share/applications/

nano /home/$USER/.local/share/applications/typora.desktop

Paste the following text :

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Terminal=false
Icon=/path/to/icon/icon.png
Name=Typora
Comment=MarkDown Editor
Exec=/opt/typora/Typora
Categories=IDE;

As for Icon and Exec, use either a full path or a "system" name. You can find a lot of typora png in google save it and move to /opt/typora/ with sudo

For Categories, consult the XDG Standards list.

-> desktop-files

Regards.,

Thanks @hhlp. This worked perfectly for me on Fedora 29 KDE.
