Installing Fractal on Fedora 31
As of writing it has no RPM package from official sources so here is how I built it on Fedora 31.
Clone git repo
$ git clone https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/fractal
Switch to a release tag
The master branch required libraries not available in Fedora 31 so as of writing I selected the latest release, 4.2.2.
$ git checkout 4.2.2
$ sudo dnf install cairo cairo-devel meson cargo gdk-pixbuf2-devel gtk3-devel libhandy-devel \ gstreamer1-devel gspell-devel gtksourceview4-devel gstreamer1-plugins-base-devel \ gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free-devel gst-editing-services-devel
I'm doing a build with a local $HOME target here to avoid using sudo. So you need $HOME/.local/bin in your PATH.
$ meson . _build --prefix=~/.local $ ninja -C _build
$ ninja -C _build install
Now just run ''fractal'', the install step will have setup a .desktop file for you so in Gnome you should be able to press your Meta key and just type in fractal to make its icon show up.
