Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 107440
synaptic should be installed
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:39:41 EDT
Description of problem:
It would be great if synaptic and its dependencies were included with Fedora's
install. It makes software installation easier than anything out there. I've
gotten a version from rpm.pbone.net built for RedHat 9 and it works great. Just
think it'd be a good feature for new users.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
up2date should change to synaptic
Another vote to have synaptic included as a core package. I've been
using RH/Fedora for years, and according to posts on the boards,
adding new packages is always the #1 problem for people new to Linux.
Giving them a gui-based way to add packages would make many people
like the Fedora distro much better.

It's not planned at this point.
What about gyum? It does the same, but using yum instead of apt. Even
if i must admit i haven't tested it (using synaptic/apt), it looks
yes please add gyum at least to fedora-extras.
the version for fc2 from fedoranews.org does not work with latest
the error is:
