Nobara Project

Last Update: 2023-01-30 01:13 UTC

Nobara Project is a modified version of Fedora Linux with user-friendly fixes added to it. The distribution comes with certain features that do not ship with the regular Fedora, such as WINE dependencies, OBS Studio, 3rd party codec packages for GStreamer, NVIDIA drivers, and some package fixes. Nobara aims to fix most of those issues and offer a better gaming, streaming and content creation experience out of the box. The project's official release comes with a custom-themed GNOME desktop, but it also offers separate editions with standard GNOME and KDE desktops.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 66 (159), 6 months: 29 (318), 3 months: 32 (296), 4 weeks: 27 (326), 1 week: 30 (312)

Average visitor rating: 8.16/10 from 31 review(s).

After jumping between distros for several years and using OpenSUSE TW KDE for about a year, Nobara (KDE flavor in my case) is a breath of fresh air. You get all the superb user-friendliness, modernity, and stability of Fedora, while having your distro be tailored for gaming, if that's what your most intensive computing tasks are as in my case. Somehow it has the best installer dialogue I have ever used (Calamares is incredible and GE did a great job using it for Nobara) and the first time set up was clear, sensible, and with only a couple minor redundancies in the process.

After all that, it's just good ol' KDE on Fedora, but with great defaults and preconfigured packages for gaming. It even has its own generalized package manager (Nobara Package Manager) which allows me to easily see and search all the dnf packages on my system, which is honestly a step UP from stock Fedora.

I hope to come back to this review in 6 months to either maintain or raise my rating.

Nobara is the only distribution that provides an adequate presence for AMD cards. It works great and I have not encountered any problems. GNOME is slightly customized and some keyboard shortcuts are not active, some gnome programs cannot be disabled. Lutris works very well. Only note is the not immediate ability to use Stable Diffusion or InvokeAI, the card is recognized but the work is not done. (p.s. A problem found in other distributions except kubuntu 20.04). Fantastic distribution! Those who wish to use it for graphics and games and no doubt a perfect distribution.

I've been on desktop Linux for a year or so now, started with a lot of debian based distros tried about 7 different ones from Ubuntu to Mint. I loved them all for what they were and what I learned about Linux. Then I tried Fedora, I liked the cinnamon DE so I did that one and I liked it.. but it was a lot of work to setup and get video to play and some games but it was nice to be closer to the current Linux Kernel. I've actually tried Nobara before Fedora but didnt know enough to enjoy it.

So I tried it again and after setting up going through all the Fedora setup I see how amazing Nobara is. The ease of setup is incredible. I worry for its long term use but right now where its at I'd recommend it to absolutely anyone beginner or advanced user. The creator/developer on it is a very smart dude and I thank him so much for it!
