I would like to load a text on Fedora. I use this command:

setkey -f "name"

but the file cannot be found. I have the file on my desktop.

You obviously have to change into the directory which is your Desktop before. If your desktop is ~/Desktop then the command you need is:

cd ~/Desktop
# the following command shows you the files (and more) in this directory

In case you have problems finding your desktop directory: The KDE file manager (Dolphin) has the feature that it can open a shell in the current directory. Maybe your file manager (which should easily find your desktop) can to that, too.
