How to verify a mate-compiz image ?

I have downloaded file edora-MATECompiz-Live-x86 64-26-1.5.iso. It turns out the checksum files available under URL https://getfedora.org/verify 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 https://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/26/Spins/x8664/iso/Fedora-MATECompiz-Live-x8664-26-1.5.iso, then copy link and remove image's file name to get to it's parent direcory: https://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/26/Spins/x8664/iso/ 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.
