How To Install Screencloud 1.1.6 On Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 12.04, Debian 7 And Derivative Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Screencloud is a cloud storage service for uploading screenshots, easy and fast. The users can take screenshots by pressing some key combinations and place the photos on the local computer, personal ftp or on the screencloud.net (to upload the screenshots on the cloud, you have to create an account on screencloud.net)

Keyboard shortcuts for taking screenshots:

  • Shift + Alt + 1 : To capture the whole screen;
  • Shift + Alt + 2 : To select an area to capture;
  • Shift + Alt + 3 : To capture the current window.

The latest version available is Screencloud 1.1.6, which has been released a while ago.

Because it is not available via any repository or PPA, we have to download the deb packages and install them from the command-line. I prefer gdebi over dpkg, due to the fact that it also handles dependencies. Follow the instructions for your system and architecture exactly, in order to get a successful installation.

    For ubuntu 15.04 vivid, ubuntu-mate 15.04, and other 15.04 based distros libquazip0 was removed so this package fails to install due to missing dependency. So what we need to do is install libquazip1 and symlink it to the old version to force screencloud to use the new library.

    (Note: these are instructions for 64bit, for 32bit the files and directories will be a little different but the same thing should work)
    # wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/olav-st/xUbuntu_14.04/amd64/screencloud_1.2.0-1_amd64.deb

    (I prefer to do this as root but you can use sudo for each command too)
    # sudo su

    # apt-get install –no-install-recommends libqtmultimediakit1 libqxt-core0 libqxt-gui0 libquazip1

    # ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libquazip.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libquazip.so.0

    # dpkg -i –force-depends screencloud_1.2.0-1_amd64.deb

    I just realized this makes apt complain when trying to install anything else. you have to also edit this file (as root or sudo):
    /var/lib/dpkg/status
    find screencloud
    find the line with “depends”
    change libquazip0 to libquazip1 then save/exit
    # apt-get update

    fixed.

    Additional notes: you can open this file as root with a GUI text editor such as gedit like this:
    $ gksu gedit /var/lib/dpkg/status
