How To Install MusicBrainz Picard on Fedora 38

Install MusicBrainz Picard on Fedora 38

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MusicBrainz Picard on Fedora 38. Are you tired of your music library being a complete mess? Do you have trouble finding the right songs or artists in your digital collection? MusicBrainz Picard might be the solution you need! Picard is a powerful music tagger that can help you organize your digital music collection with ease. With Picard, you can identify and tag your music files with the correct metadata, including album art, artist, album, and track name. The best part? It’s available on multiple platforms, including Linux, so you can use it on your favorite operating system.

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 Flask web framework on a Fedora 38.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 38.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for Flask.
  • 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 MusicBrainz Picard on Fedora 38

Step 1. Before proceeding, update your Fedora operating system to make sure all existing packages are up to date. Use this command to update the server packages:

sudo dnf upgrade
sudo dnf update

  • Method 1. Install MusicBrainz Picard via DNF √

The easiest way to install MusicBrainz Picard on Fedora 38 is via DNF. Open the terminal and run the following command:
