I would like to install some customization packages to Qubes KDE. Is there any way to temporarily override yum config to add another repository?


Example repo


Manually create new repo file in dom0 terminal

cd /etc/yum.repos.d
sudo nano <new>.repo

Then open example repo URL and place its contents to your <new>.repo

name = New Example Repo
type = rpm-md
baseurl = http://repo.download.org/new/fedora_23/
gpgcheck = 1
gpgkey = http://repo.download.org/new/fedora_23/repodata/repomd.xml.key
enabled = 1

Keep in mind that adding repos to dom0 is SECURITY RISK.

Press Ctrl+O to save as new file and Ctrl+X to exit nano editor. Then update repo cache by

sudo qubes-dom0-update

Now installing packages is as simple as sudo qubes-dom0-update <package>
