How To Install Smillaenlanger 0.9 On Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 12.04 And Derivative Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, SmillaEnlager is an open source graphical tool for photo resizing and magnifying bitmaps in high quality, written in C++ and based on the Qt libraries.

The latest version available is Smillaenlarger 0.9, which has been released a while ago. While the development of Smillaenlarger has been dropped, the software is still installable on Ubuntu and derivative systems.

how to install Smillaenlarger 0.9 Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, Deepin 2014, Peppermint Five, LXLE 14.04, Linux Lite 2

In this article I will show you how to install Smillaenlarger 0.9 Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, Deepin 2014, Peppermint Five, LXLE 14.04, Linux Lite 2 and other Ubuntu derivative systems.

Because it is not available via any repository or PPA, we have to download the smillaenlarger deb package for Ubuntu 12.04 and install it via command-line. I prefer gdebi over dpkg due to the fact that it also handles dependencies.

Follow the instructions for your system’s architecture exactly, in order to get a successful installation.

    Thank you very much for most recent install tips which are working flawlessly. Smillaenlarger is one fantastic piece of software. It’s equivalent or even better than it’s commercial non linux counterparts such as Alien Skin blow up, Perfect Resize or Genuine Fractals. I just wonder why it’s not been modified as a plugin to GIMP..?
