  • Linux Lite: 3.2 32bit
Because I am sick & tired of trying to get new photo's into a workable system now I have installed Linux Lite?

I do not understand that file manager gubbins or gimp or see any use in image viewer & am sick & tired of having to learn new stuff  every time I 'upgrade' Linux.This is all just so bloody depressing.....I have shotwell on a notebook with Lubuntu & no problems at all it just could'nt be easier...... (have tried to download shotwell just now & it dos'nt even seem an option)  >:(

Hi SickofLinux,
The easiest way is to open your terminal and type:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get updateThen enter your password

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install shotwellAnswer Y (yes) to install.

All done  ;)

64bit OS (32-bit on Samsung netbook) installed in Legacy mode on MBR-formatted SSDs (except pi which uses a micro SDHC card):
2017 - Raspberry pi 3B (4cores) ~ Arm710@1.2GHz - LibreElec, used for upgrading our Samsung TV (excellent for the task)  
2012 - Lenovo G580 2689 (2cores; 4threads] ~ i3-3110M@2.4GHz - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working smoothly)
2011 - Samsung NP-N145 Plus (1core; 2threads) ~ Intel Atom N455@1.66GHz - LL 3.8 32-bit (64-bit too 'laggy')
2008 - Asus X71Q (2cores) ~ Intel T3200@2.0GHz - LL4.6/Win8.1 dual-boot, LL works fine with kernel 4.15
2007 - Dell Latitude D630 (2cores) ~ Intel T7100@1.8GHz - LL4.6, works well with kernel 4.4; 4.15 doesn't work

@SICKOFLINUX,

Try this:

Menu, System, Install/Remove Software.  Search for "shotwell."  Mark it for installation and click on Apply.  As a reference, visit https://www.linuxliteos.com/manual/ and view the Software / Installing Software section.

Thanks for that Mike,it went well & I have installed shotwell successfully (thumb up smilley if there were one).Only problem shutting down the terminal..I vaguely remembered having to type in exit or something & not sure I did it successfully,anyway I now have shotwell up & running & even managed to transfer a photo to my desktop prior to adding to a forum reply that I wanted to illustrate.(that thumb up symbol again).

Tried that Install/remove software option & it ended up in a damn frustrating experience.Anyway it is done now thanks.

@SICKOFLINUX,

Why would you need to use Install/Remove Software for Shotwell if you already got it installed using the terminal commands?

Shotwell has now been added to Lite Software. We needed a Photo Manager, and now we have one :)
