3rd Party Repository: Flexiondotorg Shotwell

This repository is available for: Lucid 

Title: Shotwell for Lucid

This PPA contains Shotwell 0.10.0 built for Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 LTS.

I created this PPA because I run Lucid at home and wanted the new version of Shotwell. Sadly, Yorba aren't going to provide new Shotwell packages for Lucid due to the reasons discussed in the following ticket:

- http://trac.yorba.org/ticket/3015

As mentioned in the ticket above, there are newer versions of Shotwell available for Lucid in other PPAs. However, those PPAs contain hundreds of packages. If you're not that brave, like me, then hopefully this PPA provides what you need. I have built Shotwell with minimal changes from the original Yorba source packages and not polluted this PPA with any unnecessary packages ;-)

To install Shotwell on Lucid do the following:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:flexiondotorg/shotwell
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install shotwell

Thanks to the Yorba team for their help in simplifying the back porting process :-)


Daily Build: no

To install this PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:flexiondotorg/shotwell 
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install <package name>
where <package name> is one of the packages below.

Hey thanks to your efforts I can enjoy the latest version of Shotwell without downloading hundreds of packages.
Much appreciated.

Problems with shotwell install - libwebkitgtk-1.0-0 (>= 1.1.5) is not installable

I'm on 10.04 and would love to get a newer shotwell version.

I tried your ppa. But I have libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0 0.10.28-1 but >= 0.10.32 is needed.

How can I solve this?

<p>@Ben, you might want to install the ppa:gstreamer-developers/ppa PPA to fix the dependency problem. See <a href="http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/08/shotwell-0-11-lucid-users">shotwell-0-11-lucid-users</a> for more information.</p>

@uupdates Thanks, that worked! What tricked me a minute after that was that I had disabled the Flexiondotorg ppa and even though I added it again it didn't get active so I could just see the old 0.7 version of Shotwell.. You always learn something! :)
