We have two separate software repositories:

 * '''free''' for Open Source Software (as defined by the Fedora Licensing Guidelines) which the Fedora project cannot ship due to other reasons
 * '''nonfree''' for redistributable software that is not Open Source Software (as defined by the Fedora Licensing Guidelines); this includes software with publicly available source-code that has "no commercial use"-like restrictions
Line 7: Line 15:
Enabling access to the '''free''' repository is easy and basically only one step: click on one of the following files, depending on what distribution you use and then follow the default options that Firefox and Package Kit offer by clicking ''Enter'' a few times: [[http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm|Fedora 8, 9 or 10]]; [[http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm|Fedora Alpha, Beta, Preview, Rawhide, RC, Snapshot]]; [[http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/el/updates/testing/5/i386/rpmfusion-free-release-5-0.1.noarch.rpm|RHEL5 or compatible like CentOS]] 1. First enable access to the '''free''' repository. For users of gpk (gnome package kit) or kpackagekit in Fedora that is easy and basically only one step: just click on one of the following files, depending on what distribution you use and then follow the default options that Firefox and Package Kit offer by clicking ''Enter'' a few times (¹):

RPM Fusion repositories also provide [[https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Distributions/AppStream/|Appstream metadata]] to enable users to install packages using Gnome Software/KDE Discover. Please note that these are a subset of all packages since the metadata are only generated for GUI packages.

sudo dnf groupupdate multimedia --setop="install_weak_deps=False" --exclude=PackageKit-gstreamer-plugin
}}}

 * The following command will install the sound-and-video complement packages needed by some applications: {{{

== Tainted repos ==

RPM Fusion has introduced "tainted" repos for free and nonfree sections. This is for Fedora, RHEL, CentOS and derived.

 * Tainted free is dedicated for FLOSS packages where some usages might be restricted in some countries. Example: to play DVD with libdvdcss: {{{
sudo dnf install rpmfusion-free-release-tainted
sudo dnf install libdvdcss
}}}

 * Tainted nonfree is dedicated to non-FLOSS packages without a clear redistribution status by the copyright holder. But is allowed as part of hardware inter-operability between operating systems in some countries : {{{
sudo dnf install rpmfusion-nonfree-release-tainted
sudo dnf install \*-firmware
}}}


== Important notes ==

 * You need to enable [[http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL|EPEL]] on RHEL or compatible distributions like CentOS ''before'' you enable RPM Fusion for EL. See the fedoraproject wiki for instruction [[http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/FAQ#howtouse|how to enable EPEL]].

Installing Free and Nonfree Repositories

We have two separate software repositories:

  • free for Open Source Software (as defined by the Fedora Licensing Guidelines) which the Fedora project cannot ship due to other reasons

  • nonfree for redistributable software that is not Open Source Software (as defined by the Fedora Licensing Guidelines); this includes software with publicly available source-code that has "no commercial use"-like restrictions

Installation can be done either using a web browser, or via the command line.

Graphical Setup via Firefox web browser

1. First enable access to the free repository. For users of gpk (gnome package kit) or kpackagekit in Fedora that is easy and basically only one step: just click on one of the following files, depending on what distribution you use and then follow the default options that Firefox and Package Kit offer by clicking Enter a few times (¹):

2. Once that succeeds, you can enable access to the nonfree repositories by clicking on one of the following files, depending on what distribution you use and then follow the default options that Firefox and Package Kit offer by clicking Enter a few times(¹):

(¹) Once you clicked on above link Firefox will ask you how to Open the file. Here you can simply use the default and open the file with the default application Package Installer. Then Firefox will call Package Kit, which asks Do you want to install this file ?. Click OK to begin install; Package Kit then will complain about a Missing security signature; once you tell Package Kit to install the package nevertheless it will move on and install it. That's all.

Command Line Setup using rpm

To enable access to both the free and the nonfree repository use the following command:

  • Fedora with dnf:

    sudo dnf install https://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm https://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm
  • Silverblue with rpm-ostree:

    sudo rpm-ostree install https://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm https://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm
    # You will have to reboot for the rpmfusion repositories to appear)
  • RHEL 8 or compatible like CentOS

    sudo dnf install --nogpgcheck https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-8.noarch.rpm
    sudo dnf install --nogpgcheck https://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/free/el/rpmfusion-free-release-8.noarch.rpm https://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/el/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-8.noarch.rpm
  • CentOS 8 required additional step

    sudo dnf config-manager --enable PowerTools
  • RHEL 8 required additional step

    sudo subscription-manager repos --enable "codeready-builder-for-rhel-8-$(uname -m)-rpms"
  • RHEL 7 or compatible like CentOS:

    sudo yum localinstall --nogpgcheck https://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/free/el/rpmfusion-free-release-7.noarch.rpm https://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/el/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-7.noarch.rpm
  • RHEL 6 or compatible like CentOS:

    sudo yum localinstall --nogpgcheck https://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/free/el/rpmfusion-free-release-6.noarch.rpm https://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/el/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-6.noarch.rpm

Note : If sudo is not properly set on your installation, you can replace 'sudo' with 'su -c' in the commands above.

Important notes

  • You need to enable EPEL on RHEL or compatible distributions like CentOS before you enable RPM Fusion for EL. See the fedoraproject wiki for instruction how to enable EPEL.
