Run Kube in Just 65 Fewer Easy Steps

In a previous blog post, I listed 69 steps necessary to get Kube running.

You didn’t really think I was going to leave it at that though, right? So, here’s 65 fewer steps:

Add the repository configuration:

$ sudo wget -O/etc/yum.repos.d/Kube:Winterfell.repo \

Import the GPG public key used to sign the packages:

$ rpm --import

Install the software:

$ sudo dnf -y install kube

And give it a run:

$ kube-mail


UPDATE: Needed to add another step to import the GPG key :/

UPDATE 2: The environment variable exports are no longer needed.

  1. Hello, I tried the above on Fedora 23 with gnome. Had to disable gpg checking for the dnf installer to proceed.
    When running the kube-mail I got this error:
    QQmlApplicationEngine failed to load component
    file:///usr/share/kpackage/pim/org.kde.kube.mail/contents/ui/main.qml:21 module “org.kde.plasma.components” is not installed


  2. You can avoid setting those environment variables if you used the default Qt5 locations for qml and plugins,
