    I would also suggest using Maldet. It’s free, and once configured a pretty solid way of scanning for malicious files.

  2. Morpheus says:

    except if you have actually done these installs, do not put them here. docky for example is not in Fedora’s package dist.

  3. skierpage says:

    Most of these commands need to be preceded with `sudo`, they need to be run as root. Your examples all seem to be running in a root shell, but it’s really bad advice/assumption for people to run a root shell.

    Your assumption “enp0s3 or eth0” is incomplete (they are preceded by “ifcfg-“) and sometimes wrong, my Ethernet script is named “ifcfg-enp0s31f6”

    I’d like to you how to install an Nvidia Card GT218 (8400GS) , want to use F26 with an older PC. Tried to follow some instructions on other websites but achieved nothing. for example nvidia-detect, seems like I need to install this firs but could not figure out how, and what the syntax exactly is step by step instructions like here on his page would be great. Thanks!

  5. Miheal says:

    Thanks this list is really useful. My changes to it would be:

    Do not recommend, or at least warn about browser security issues that come with “15. Install Java Plugins for web”.
    I prefer xsane over simplescan, for some reason simplescan does not scan over wifi for me.
    I would not recommend VirtualBox due to the bad kernel modules that come with it. Try vmware or fedora boxes (kvm).

  7. nobody says:

    clamscan (1) – scan files and directories for viruse

    nmap (1) – Network exploration tool and security / port scanner

  8. Stuart Sayre says:

    Great list this helped me immensely! I was able to get my dual boot latitude E7240 created with Fedora 26 all in one morning. I have a docking station, dual monitors, external keyboard, mouse, external speakers all working with no issues.
