Installing Discord on Fedora 33

For some reason a lot of applications out there do not have a built RPM package. Fortunately, there are a bunch of applications built into snap, so we can install snap and then install Discord.

You can also use the copr repo. Visit the following link for instructions.

Install Snap Store

sudo dnf install snapd

Install Discord

snap install discord

You may need to try signing out and back in or restarting your computer for the applications to show up in your application menu.

You can also manually run the application with

snap run discord

Reset NextCloud admin password – Snap package

The regular command to reset the password for a NextCloud user does not work when NextCloud is installed from a snap package.

$ sudo -u www-data php /var/www/nextcloud/occ user:resetpassword admin
Could not open input file: /var/www/nextcloud/occ

The reason is that NextCloud is located in “/snap/nextcloud”

Unfortunately the occ file is not located in /snap/nextcloud/current/

However, you can run the nextcloud.occ command directly without specifying the path. Change admin to your user.

sudo nextcloud.occ user:resetpassword admin

Type in the new password twice and login.
