Ultramarine, The Easier Fedora · The Kernal

It is no doubt that Fedora is steadily becoming an amazing option for desktop Linux, in many cases outperforming Ubuntu and OpenSUSE. And yet, despite its amazing features, great support, and beautiful default experience, there always seems to be some things that aren’t there. Many desktops, multimidea codecs, and non-free applications are not available on Fedora Linux by default without some heavy tinkering. And it is that problem, that Ultramarine Linux attempts to solve. Ultramarine Linux is a Fedora based, open sourced distro that attempts to make the experience more usable by adding the option for more desktops, external repositories, and codecs that aren’t available on the regular Fedora. So, after giving it a spin, I’m going to show you what makes Ultramerine tick, and why you might want to check it out.

“Many desktops, multimedia codecs, and non-free applications are not available on Fedora Linux by default without some heavy tinkering.” By heavy tinkering, do you mean a search, copy a couple repositories, and paste them into the command line? Heavy for Windoze users I guess.

I suppose for new users on Linux it is easier to use apt install (or dnf install, I just think most users could switch to Ubuntu if they can’t get it to work on Fedora) than add unknown repositories for them.

With Fedora 36 isn’t anymore true you can just turn on the switch for third party libraries and than you have RPM Fusion also enabled. And now is Nividia open source and will part of the linux kernel and budgie is coming officially to Fedora. I think Ultramarine miss there time.

False. Just like F35, all it enables is the “Fedora third-party repos”, which include Google Chrome’s and PyCharm’s repos, as well as Steam and NVIDIA Driver filtered RPM Fusion and filtered Flathub.

You still need to use the terminal to enable RPMFusion and there’s nothing the Fedora team can legally do currently to make it available to users in an easier way without putting themselves to some level of risk.

Ultramarines you mean?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
