In Ubuntu when an app is not installed and in Terminal you type for example gvim it says that this app is contained in package vim-gnome and try installing that but in fedora that doesn't happen with yum and it just says command not found.

My question is: is there any way to add this feature or something similar to fedora? and if not how should I install an app that I don't know it's package name.

Install the package PackageKitCommandNotFound.

For install, use:

yum install PackageKit-command-not-found

@Farzam: Unfortunately it was the only package I found for that. – quark8 Jul 12 '13 at 13:38
