Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know gThumb is the default application for vieweing images on the GNOME desktop environment. Among others, it enables the users to export images to Flickr, Photobucket, Facebook or PicasaWeb, has some features for basic photo editing (crop, resize, rotate), allows the users to import images from digital camera and has support for both WebP images and videos.
The latest version available is gThumb 3.3.2, which works only on GNOME and Cinnamon.
In this article I will show you how to install gThumb 3.3.2 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr (using GNOME) and Linux Mint 17 (using Cinnamon).
Because it is available via PPA, installing gThumb 3.3.2 on Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 and Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the gthumb package. Like this:
