Third Party Software Repositories

Fedora Workstation in its out of box configuration only includes free and open source software. However, we've made it possible to easily install a curated set of third party repositories through the 'fedora-workstation-repositories' package. Installing this currently adds the following extra repositories:

  • Google Chrome, the web browser from Google (google-chrome.repo)
  • PyCharm, Python IDE for Professional Developers by JetBrains (_copr_phracek-PyCharm.repo)

Installing through GNOME Software

GNOME Software makes it possible to easily install the extra third party repositories. Go to Software Repositories, click on 'Install' next to 'Third Party Repositories' and wait a moment until the 'fedora-workstation-repositories' package gets installed. After that, searching for e.g. 'chrome' should find Google Chrome and allow installing it.

Installing on command line

'dnf install fedora-workstation-repositories' installs the extra third party repositories on the command line and makes the .repo files available in /etc/yum.repos.d/.
