Fedora Utils, a tool allowing users to install codecs and additional software, fix problems, tweak and cleanup the operating system, view system information and much more with just few clicks, is now at version 2.3.2.

Highlights of Fedora Utils 2.3.2:

• The codec installation has been fixed;
• The Oracle Java installation has been repaired;
• The Arista installation now works properly;
• The add-sudoer plugin is no longer showing the wrong status.

The installation is pretty fast forward and can be done through a terminal. Just enter the following command:

su -c "curl http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/satya164:/fedorautils/Fedora_17/home:satya164:fedorautils.repo -o /etc/yum.repos.d/fedorautils.repo && yum install fedorautils"

If you are using Fedora 17, then you will also need to install the patched zenity. Open a terminal and enter the following command:

su -c "curl http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/satya164:/zenity/Fedora_17/home:satya164:zenity.repo -o /etc/yum.repos.d/zenity.repo && yum update zenity"

A backlog of updates and new features can be found in the official announcement.
