How to Install Fotoxx on Fedora 36 Linux

Fotoxx is an open-source program for basic image editing. It can be used to organize and manage extensive collections of images, optimize photos in various ways, including adjusting color balance or brightness levels on individual targets within a photo, and perform well-performing batch operations with several at once! This application also has app menus that reside on the left side, where you’ll find options such as pointing out specific files (like dime.), viewing all captured media discs, and much more.

In the following tutorial, you will learn how to install Fotoxx on Fedora 36 Linux using the default Fedora appstream, along with tips on updating and removing the image software using the DNF package manager with the command line terminal.

Update Fedora

The first step is to make sure your system is up-to-date to avoid issues during the installation and for good practice. This is done by opening your terminal and using the following command.

sudo dnf upgrade --refresh

Install Fotoxx

For most users, the easiest way to install the software is to utilize the Fedora repository using the DNF package manager; given that Fedora focuses on the latest releases every six months and often, during that time, releases even more updates, you are generally on the latest if not one version behind in most cases making it desirable instead of using alternative package managers.

Install Fotoxx using the following DNF install command.

sudo dnf install fotoxx -y

How to Launch Fotoxx

Now that you have the software installed, launching can be done in a few ways.

In your terminal, use the following command.


If you would like to launch and use the terminal at the same time, send it to the background:

fotoxx &

However, this isn’t practical for desktop users, and you would use the following path on your desktop.

Activities > Show Applications > Fotoxx.
