Install Shotwell 0.7.2 in ubuntu 10.04/9.10
Open the terminal and run the following commands
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yorba/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install shotwell
Thanks for porting to 9.10, because I would like to know how the new foto manager for version 10.10 is doing.
I’ve tried two steps, first opening pictures with the CR2 and NEF extensions and both couldn’t be opened. Currently f-spot can do this.
Second step is to open pictures on my NAS. The foto drive is mapped in nautilus but it is lacking the feature to access my NAS via: smb://pakezel/foto/, which is possible via nautulis. f-spot lacks this too. Probably a bug in nautilus.
For the last step I found a solution. It was described in http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1479974 .Go to your home directory and type .gvf and there all your own mounts are given. Graphically not very appealing but it works with f-spot.
Is there any way to install .7 via the ppa in Ubuntu Karmic 9.10?
0.72 is not available for Karmic. Either it has been pulled or it never was.
