Could you try to explain your problem again in proper English? I have no idea what you are actually asking, though I assume you have somehow lost X and are now stuck in the terminal.

Can explain more.
What task you do it in ubuntu, you want to do it fedora.
To install/update a package in fedora, you can use
#yum install nameof package

generics array
