there is no apt-get in Fedora, and even if there was, the official 
repositories are not in APT format, so it would be useless.
The "adept" program is designed for apt-get only, so I did not even 
built it on Fedora.
Kpackage is usable with RPM packages, alas it lacks features that YUM 

So there is no good package manager for Fedora in Trinity.
I suggest you install "yumex", it is in GTK but does not require the 
entire gnome.

Install with:
   yum install yumex
