Since you are using Fedora, you could try using Fedora Utils or Autoplus for a wide range of post installation operations. This is a good option if you do not prefer to use command line (although it would be better to get yourself familiarized with the CLI, assuming you are not). These two tools will also add third party repositories.

Here are the links
Fedora Utils
