Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, PhotoFilmStrip is an open source app for creating video slideshows. Having an intuitive interface, it enables the users to easily add effects, music and comments to the slideshow and export it in many video formats.
The latest version available is PhotoFilmStrip 2.0.0, which has been recently released. Among others, it comes with a “lazy loading” feature for uploading images, new options, improved effects and many bugfixes. For more information, see the release notes.
In this article I will show you how to install PhotoFilmStrip 2.0.0 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pear OS, Elementary OS, Debian, Crunchbang and Kwheezy.
Because it is not available via repository, we have to download the photofilmstrip deb package from the official site and install it with dpkg. Like this:
$ wget -c http://sourceforge.net/projects/photostoryx/files/photofilmstrip/2.0.0-RC1/photofilmstrip_2.0.0-1_all.deb
$ sudo dpkg -i photofilmstrip_2.0.0-1_all.deb
$ sudo apt-get install -f
