    Have you done any research about the topic of your question? Have you read the basic user documentation for Fedora Linux? The Fedora community is active and has a lot of great guidance available. unix.stackexchange.com/help/how-to-ask

    Normally I would suggest fedoraproject.org/wiki/Getting_Started_Guide but they currently have a major network outage and the wiki sites are offline.

  • yum can use repositories that reside on local storage. DVDs etc. But using the internet would probably give you the best coverage of recent rpms. I wouldn't know if you have a dvd with extras etc

The syntax you should use to install packages is:

dnf install fortran gnuplot xfig latex dvips ghostview dvipdf

If you are using an older release, dnf won't work. Replace it with yum in the previous example.

You can learn more about this yourself at the Fedora Getting Started Guide
