#401 Review: Updated cheat cube to use DNF instead of yum
Closed: Invalid None Opened 3 years ago by ankursinha.


I updated the cheatcube to use dnf instead of yum. Could someone please take a look and put it up on the wiki here:(or give me a "go ahead" to put it up)


Some font/text tweaks:

  • for the fedora CHEAT CUBE logo, can you change the font on the "CHEAT CUBE" text to Comfortaa uppercase?
  • for all other MgOpen Modata font usage, can you change it to Montserrat? They aren't equivalent so you may need to scale down a bit too. You can do this most efficiently probably by doing a find & replace in a text editor on the SVG, then opening up in inkscape and tweaking the font sizes / positioning.
  • the headers for the sections (eg Network configuration, network manager, firewall configuration) are all over the place. Suggest center alignment; they should be consistent. The padding between these headers and the text below them also should be more uniform.
  • the headers on the blue background should probably be left-aligned.

Four f's graphic:
- while this isn't explicitly an approved arrangement of the elements, it's okay. But the four f bubbles need to be aligned better. The green 'first' bubble' is higher than the orange one - they should be aligned along their tops. I would check the vertical and horizontal alignment of all 4 relative to each other.
- can you scale down the fedora logo in the middle just a little bit to give it more breathing space?

A group of us just reviewed this in the design team meeting and i updated the above comment to reflect all of our feedback.

Ack. I'll update it before the next meeting. Thanks for the feedback.

Hey ankur, any updates on this one?

Hey ankur, any updates on this one?

Sorry, been busy with uni work. I'll try and do this by next week :(

Just another ping in case there's an update (doing triage today)


I just haven't been able to do it, and I don't think I'll be able to work on this anytime soon. I'm closing the ticket so that someone else can proceed with the task if they wish.

Sorry about that,


The french team wants to translate it for some events. But first, the cube seems to need some love. Here a little update based on duff'y comments and Ankur work, please tell me if there is anything that I can do to update/rework it.



Following discussion in the translate list (https://lists.fedoraproject.org/archives/list/trans@lists.fedoraproject.org/thread/X3MQIOVICE45T2BOM4EYUHK3GXE336PQ/ ) , I have updated the cube to allow .po generation with itstool.

Tell me if it works for you,


Hey, wow, I was just thinking about this the other day, and got through my vacation email far enough to find that people are working on it. Something must be in the air. :)

This is great work, and thanks to everyone for working on it. I think continuing to improve this is worthwhile. I was also thinking it might be nice to have edition-specific versions as well. Fedora Atomic commands might be different from what would be most helpful to workstation users. Or (or perhaps "and"), we could have some use-case focused ones. "Fedora for Developers", "Fedora for Sysadmins", "Fedora for Designers". I guess that's really an idea to take back to Marketing before going through Design. :)

Where's the best place to collaborate on content? For example, the service commands should be updated for systemd, and the ifconfig commands updated to their modern ip equivalents...

Hi, thank you for your comment :)

An other cube for packager is available here (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Marketing_collateral?rd=Artwork/MarketingCollateral#Fedora_Cheat_Cubes )

Between, I just realised that a version include systemd commands, but not dnf ones ( https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/File:Fedora_Cheat_Cube_Users_Fedora20_above.png ). Will be a good idea to merge them.

I think that a pagure project will be appropriated, no ? It support issues, pull request... What do you think ?

Yes, that's a great idea. You want to create it or should I?

It'd be nice if we could separate the text from the design somehow. I'm not sure how exactly to do that given the space constraints....

Pagure project created here: https://pagure.io/fedora-cheat-cubes/
I added @design group and @marketing group as admin (so it is including you).

The main problem for is, with the spaces constraints, the triangle image that separate command and effects. As an image, it is obviously not treated like text...
