I have downloaded file edora-MATECompiz-Live-x86 64-26-1.5.iso. It turns out the checksum files available under URL do not include any checksum at all for the so called "spin" distributions, such as MATE-Compiz or KDE. Any idea how to find the required checksums ? Thanks.

Most of the time checksums are in the same directory with disk image.

So if you downloaded, then copy link and remove image's file name to get to it's parent direcory: and locate file with checksums.

When verifying checksum, add --ignore-missing option to get rid of spam about files you didn't download:

sha256sum -c --ignore-missing checksum_file

It's been a while since F26 release, here you'll find fresh images with latest updates incorporated.
