Window Switcher

By default, windows in the window switcher (ALT + Tab) are grouped by applications. The grouping can be disabled by changing the shortcut from triggering the application switcher to the window switcher. In order to do this, the dconf-editor_ can be used to switch the keybinding. The keybinding is in the folder org/gnome/desktop/wm/keybindings`.

First, the value of keybinding switch-applications has to be set to []. After that, the keybinding of switch-windows can be set to ['<Super>Tab', '<Alt>Tab'].

Nextcloud Client

The nextcloud client is available from the repository and can be installed via nextcloud-client. Unfortunately, the login credentials are not stored after installing the client. The reason is that the package libgnome-keyring is missing. After installing it, credentials are stored properly.

Enable Netflix and Spotify in Firefox

Obviously, DRM has to be enabled in the Firefox preferences. However, this is not sufficient. What is still missing, are the required codecs. First, the required repositories have to be enabled:

dnf -y install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm
dnf -y install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

After that, ffmpeg can be installed. After that, the plugins OpenH264 and Widevin have to be enabled.
