First minutes on a new machine

Work in Progress


  1. Add password manager extension
  2. Log into Firefox and let the sync happen

Fedora specific - disable LVM2 monitoring service

Due to a bug in Fedora 31 preventing the system to boot, I tend to disable the lvm2-monitor service:

sudo systemctl mask lvm2-monitor2

Execute Ansible playbook

Open a terminal and execute this:

# Install ansible
# Fedora: sudo dnf install -y ansible
# Ubuntu: sudo apt install -y ansible

# Clone and execute Playbook
git clone
ansible-playbook local.yml -c localhost --ask-become-pass

The old way

sudo dnf install fedora-workstation-repositories
sudo dnf config-manager --set-enabled google-chrome
sudo dnf install google-chrome-beta

sudo rpm --import
sudo sh -c 'echo -e "[code]\nname=Visual Studio Code\nbaseurl=\nenabled=1\ngpgcheck=1\ngpgkey=" > /etc/yum.repos.d/vscode.repo'
sudo dnf check-update
sudo dnf install code-insiders
