There is a great third party product for Fedora called EasyLife that you can download that installs and configures a ton of addons and settings by default for you (ubuntu users may compare it to the deceased automatix).
It does the following
- Sets "sudo" command up for your regular user;
- Configures RPMFusion repository for extra and non-free software;
- Installs Flash Player plugin;
- Installs all kinds of multimedia Codecs (h264,divx,xvid,mp3 etc);
- Installs additional fonts;
- Installs Skype;
- Installs Sun Java and Sun Java Plugin for Firefox;
- Integrates Sun Java with system-switch-java;
- Installs Google apps (Picasa, Desktop);
- And many others...
It's available for Fedora and is a handy tool to save some time setting up the desktop for the first time.
