I'm a beginner. Help me

Nice to meet you. I have installed Fedora as my first Linux.

I have a few things I want to do, but I don’t know what software is available. Please help me.

I want to make a website. what is a good free software to make a website with GUI?

I’m looking for a free software to mine bitcoins. What do you recommend?
I want it to be light. It can be CUI software if it is easy to use.

Thanks for reading.

Check out the Software app (sort of an App store) to see what’s available.
Anything you find on Flathub—An app store and build service for Linux is also just one click away.

Also, it’s probably a good idea to add the RPMFusion software repository (store) to include some most-wanted stuff like multimedia codecs, drivers, and apps. Configuration - RPM Fusion

@rhek9959 nice to meet you too. Welcome by ask.fedora.

Could you bee more precise with your question(s)?

A good idea would be google first and look around what it has in general. Especially opensource software you will find for almost all operating systems.

When you know a Software name then search first with the spyglass about it (top right corner).
If the search not gives you an answer you like, just make a new request and put the software name in the title of your request.

It is better to create a view small requests than to produce a monster one.

So we not get heaps of same questions and the admins have less to do to make order.
Have a nice Fedora day :wink:


Are you familiar with any programming language? To create a web UI, you can use a framework like Django. To create a CLI program, there are compilers and interpreters for many programming languages on Fedora repositories, so you can pick the one you know and start building there.

I guess depending on the user’s requirements one can also just deploy something like Wordpress :thinking:


Why don’t you use Wordpress? It is stable and flexible. thousands of customizations available?

Hi! I think, that using Fedora as first disto can be too difficult. Maybe you should try something like Ubuntu or Mint. But if you realize know that your way can be hard you can use Fedora for learning and deeper understanding of Linux.

You can use any free CMS (Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal) or can use ready site constructor like wix.com or tilda How Tilda works. If you want to make custom site from scratch you can use any popular framework like vue, angular or react in Visual Studio Code which have free version. Last option require advanced knowledge in computer science.

This may be your opinion, but I wouldn’t say so—it really isn’t any different from other distributions. The workstation even includes third party repositories to make installing things easier. The DEs are exactly the same even. So, I really don’t see what makes Fedora more difficult than other distros.

Maybe we should stay on topic and help the poster with their queries. :slight_smile:

DistroWatch.com: Fedora no category ‘beginners’
DistroWatch.com: Ubuntu have it
and simple result DistroWatch.com: Put the fun back into computing. Use Linux, BSD.

I think that OS for begginers must be first of all more stable and have more gui tools and bigger community, cause new users may begin hate linux if they have too many difficults. So I want that more people in world use linux at home with pleasure and like it.

Fedora as for me, is a platform for users who have a bit more expirience than beginners, which install linux first time.

Of cause, Fedora is cool.

Categorisation on Distrowatch is hardly an objective measure of ease of use. I can’t even find what the categories are based on—user surveys? over what release/time period?

Anyway, let’s just stick to the topic. Someone’s come here asking for help, so we should answer their queries. Asking them to try another distro is not quite answering their queries.

Okay okay, you are right. If think in other side Fedora have minimalist and simple gui without tonns of advanced settings, that as i think is great for every day working***

*** if user need deep customization it not so easy.
