How To Install Homebrew on Fedora 39

Install Homebrew on Fedora 39

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Homebrew on Fedora 39. Homebrew is a popular package manager originally designed for macOS but has since been made available for Linux and Windows (via WSL). It simplifies the process of installing, updating, and managing software packages on Unix-like systems. Homebrew stands out by installing packages to its own directory and then symlinks their files into /usr/local, ensuring that it does not interfere with the system’s package manager. This approach allows users to install software even if they do not have root access, making it an excellent tool for developers and system administrators

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Homebrew package manager on a Fedora 39.


Before diving into the installation process, let’s ensure that you have everything you need:

  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 39.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • You will need access to the terminal to execute commands. Fedora 39 provides the Terminal application for this purpose. It can be found in your Applications menu.
  • A network connection or internet access to download the Homebrew repository.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Homebrew on Fedora 39

Step 1. Before installing Homebrew, it’s crucial to update your system. This ensures that all existing packages are up-to-date, and the system repo cache is refreshed. To update Fedora 39, use the following command:

sudo dnf clean all
sudo dnf update
sudo dnf groupinstall "Development Tools"

Step 2. Installing Homebrew on your Fedora 39.

Run the following command to install Homebrew:

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/HEAD/install.sh)"

During the installation, you might be prompted for your sudo password. The script will also offer the option to change the installation directory, but the default is usually fine.

After installation, add brew to your PATH by running:

echo 'eval "$(/home/linuxbrew/.linuxbrew/bin/brew shellenv)"' >> ~/.bash_profile
eval "$(/home/linuxbrew/.linuxbrew/bin/brew shellenv)"

 With Homebrew installed and added to PATH, test it out by running:

brew help

Step 3. Usage and Examples Homebrew.

You can leverage Homebrew to install hundreds of CLI apps and tools. For example, to install wget, simply run:

brew install wget

Other common packages include git, python, node, docker, etc.

To search for packages, use:

brew search [text]

And to update Homebrew’s package database:

brew update
