How To Install PhotoQt 1.1.0.1 On Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04, Fedora 20, Fedora 19 And Derivative Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, PhotoQt is an open-source image viewer with basic image manipulation functions, like rotate, flip, or zoom. Because it uses the GraphicsMagick Image processing system, it has support for more than 80 file formats.

The latest version available is PhotoQt 1.1.0.1, which has been recently released, coming with the below changes and fixes:

  • Critical Fix: PhotoQt crashed on 32 Bit systems
  • PhotoQt now based on Qt5
  • Phonon replaced by QMultimedia
  • Rotations/Flipping stored per session (nothing is saved permanently in any files)
  • Filter images in current directory by filename/extension
  • Scaling images (permanent change)
  • Faded in widgets code moved to own class (massive code simplification)
  • Fade-in now starts at the top of the screen
  • Quick Settings (fade-in widget on the right)
  • Fake Transparency (background) now supported for any number of screens
  • CMake updates translation files on the fly (handy for translators)
  • fix: restore from system tray preserves fullscreen
  • fix: context menu converted to ‘normal’ shortcut
  • fix: possible to select background image
  • fix: saving settings no longer corrupts session wide list of known file formats
  • many improvements to custom widget classes (added methods for better styling, etc.)
  • several visual mock-ups (see yourself)
