I have started a project for converting the LibreOffice Writer and Calc experiences to as close to the Microsoft Office 95 experience as I could. You can contribute to the project on gitlab: https://gitlab.com/bgstack15/libreoffice-chicago95-iconset.

Some instructions from the README:
Install Perl with # dnf install perl if it isn't already installed. Then you can go on and compile the alien source code in the freshly unpacked directory with # perl Makefile.PL; make; make install Converting DEB packages to RPM. Once alien is installed using it is simple. To convert a Debian package to RPM format use # alien -to-rpm file.deb. Now you can install your favorite desktop using the name below. Sudo dnf install environment name sudo dnf install @cinnamon-desktop-environment. Remember this will install the entire desktop environment minus the common packages which you might have already as you are running native Fedora with default desktop environment.
The OOTB (out-of-the-box) experience is now complete, but there are way more buttons to finish. Some of these buttons are hand-drawn, because a modern office suite does a lot more than Office 95 ever did.
Contributions are welcome!
MariaDB is a drop-in replacement of MySQL, forked by the community from the latter. To learn more about MariaDB, visit upstream feature page, and to see main differences from MySQL, see compatibility documentation.
What implementations of MySQL we have in Fedora
MariaDB is preferred MySQL implementation in Fedora. MariaDB can be usually used instead of MySQL as a drop-in replacement in most practical cases and most of the applications will work exactly the same. However, when you need to install Community MySQL, it is available as community-mysql package in Fedora repositories.
Generally, most of the documentation for MySQL is valid also for MariaDB.
What versions do we have in Fedora
Fedora usually ships only the most recent stable version of MariaDB.You can find various (unsupported) versions in the maintainer’s COPR repositories.Learn more about current version at upstream documentation. The package is called
mariadb (client tools) and
mariadb-server (server daemon).
You can get an older version either by installing Software Collection package of MariaDB 5.5 or by downloading packages provided by upstream.
Fedora also ships MariaDB with Galera patch. The package with MariaDB Galera is called
mariadb-galera-server and the wsrep plug-in is available in package
galera. See section How to install MariaDB Galera on Fedora for more information.
How to install MariaDB on Fedora
In order to install MariaDB client package, run:
In order to install MariaDB server package, run:
If you need to connect to the MariaDB server using GUI, install either phpMyAdmin:
Or install Libre Office Base with JDBC plug-in for MariaDB:
For connecting to the MariaDB server using ODBC, install
Basic tutorial for MariaDB in Fedora
MariaDB runs on port 3306 by default and creates a local unix socket at
/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock. By default, data is stored in the
/var/lib/mysql directory and logs are located under
/var/log/mariadb/. In order to change these directories, pay attention to use correct SELinux context and owner.
Right after installing, the data directory is empty. It is initialized during the first start.
To start MariaDB server, run:
In order to setup MariaDB to start after system reboot, run:
The root user has no password set by default and so it is allowed to connect without the password:
It is suggested to make the MariaDB more secure by running secure installation assistant:
Sudo Dnf Install
This tool asks you several questions and you are supposed to answer interactively. Do not provide the system administrator’s password for your Linux system here. Use a different strong password, since this is a separate authentication for a MySQL user called “root.”
How to configure MariaDB
Configuration of both, client and server, is done by editing files
~/.my.cnf and any files under
.cnf suffix. For more informations how to change configuration, see the upstream documentation.
How to configure MariaDB server for local development
When developing an application that uses MariaDB as the storage engine, developers typically use one user account that has full access to one dedicated database scheme. In order to do so, run the commands from section Basic tutorial for MariaDB in Fedora and then create the user and the dedicated database:
After that you may access the database from MariaDB command-line tool by running:
-p without password, you’ll be asked for the password interactively.
In various frameworks or libraries, you will usually use the username, password and database to access the database.
How to run MariaDB in production development
In order to run MariaDB in production development, you should pay extra attention to setting up the service in order to minimize the risk of being exploited. Among other things, this means:
mysql_secure_installationas mentioned above
- do not accept connections from all addresses unless absolutely necessary
- Always use a strong password
- Limit user permissions to those necessary for the application to run
By default, MariaDB cannot be accessed from another computer. In order to allow access from another computer, we need to do the following things.
Allow to accept connections on port 3306:
Allow to listen on all interfaces (or your preferred network interface) by adding configuration option:
Other common configuration
In order to change configuration parameters for the MariaDB server, create the a configuration file under
The following example shows content of the file
/etc/my.cnf.d/myconfig.cnf which contains several commonly changed options (use any variables that matches your needs).
After changing the configuration, restart the daemon using
$ sudo systemctl restart mariadb.

How to extend MariaDB server by installing extensions available in Fedora
MariaDB Connect Storage Engine enables MariaDB to access external local or remote data (MED). In order to install this engine, run:

MariaDB server available as a dynamic library:
In Fedora, MariaDB server is available also as a dynamic library, that can be handy in some applications. This library (
libmysqld.so) is available in the package
mariadb-embedded and header files for building an application against this library are available in the package
Dnf Install Package
However the use of the embedded library is discouraged. MySQL 8 dropped the embedded library and I expect MariaDB to go in the same direction.
