Daily Driving Fedora – Day ONE

For some time now I’ve been toying with the thought of shifting to Linux however there was all the time two components that held me again:

  1. Gaming
  2. Adobe

Gaming on Linux was an absolute nightmare the final time i attempted it a yr in the past however ever for the reason that launch of steam deck numerous mild is being shined on the Linux gaming group, So hopefully my expertise this time wont be as unhealthy as the primary.

I’m planning to recover from the adobe hurdle by operating a home windows digital machine utilizing vmware participant.

The rationale i did not use KVM and qemu is that i take advantage of a laptop computer and have a [mux-less graphics architecture]{https://forum.level1techs.com/t/implications-of-muxed-muxless-laptops-for-gpu-passthrough/129165}

The rationale i selected fedora over arch or debian is that arch is often stuffed with bugs that will take me time to repair and debian’s packages are fairly outdated, additionally i wished to check out gnome 42 when it comes out.

So, for the primary day I simply wished to put in fedora and in addition fashion the gnome desktop a bit.

The USB creation and set up went as clean as i anticipated though the fedora anaconda installer isn’t as intuitive as one thing like calamaries.

After the set up, there was fairly a little bit of updates which i needed to undergo. General every little thing was clean, I did have a slight audio drawback after the replace but it surely was simply mounted with a restart.

The subsequent factor on the checklist was styling, this included putting in a gtk theme , flatpak theme , icon theme , cursors , fonts and terminal immediate.

Theme ( GTK + Flatpak )

for the GTK theme i used a gtk4 backport, as i discussed earlier than i’m very excited for the gnome 42 with gtk4 launch due to this fact this appeared like a logical path to observe.

you’ll find the theme in [thid reddit post]{https://www.reddit.com/r/Fedora/comments/sd8v4o/guide_gnome_42_on_gnome_4041_while_you_wait_for/}

I additionally obtained it to put in on flatpak with [stylepak]{https://github.com/refi64/stylepak}.

Icons + cursor

for the icons I used the [Whitesur icon theme]{https://github.com/vinceliuice/WhiteSur-icon-theme} as a result of i actually just like the macos icons with their 3D results, total it simply seems to be kinda cool.

for the cursors i used the [macos cursor set]{https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1148748/} to match the icons

Terminal + Font

As my terminal emulator i take advantage of [Hyper]{}, a terminal emulator made in javascript. it isn’t the quickest on the market however it’s simply my choice. I would transfer to one thing a bit quicker afterward. For my terminal immediate i take advantage of [starship]{https://starship.rs/}. I will probably be writing an in depth article on starship later.

Within the fonts face i take advantage of jetbrains Mono for the terminal.
I’m pondering of useing apple fonts for the interface as i’m already useing mac icons and cursor.
