Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Pimagizer is an open-source lightweight tool for resizing images, written in Python using GTK+3. It has a simple and intuitive GUI and creates duplicates of the resized photos, in order not to loose the original one.
The latest version available is Pimagizer 0.4.2, which has been released a while ago, coming with changes and improvements.
In this article I will show you how to install Pimagizer 0.4.2 on Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, 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 2.0, Debian Jessie, Debian Wheezy and other Ubuntu and Debian derivative systems.
For Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 12.04 and derivative systems, Pimagizer 0.4.2 is available via PPA, so installing it is easy, just add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the pimagizer package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:vfrico/stable
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install pimagizer
To install Pimagizer 0.4.2 on Debian 7, Debian 8 and derivative systems, we have to download the deb package from launchpad and install it via command-line. I prefer gdebi over dpkg due to the fact that it also handles dependencies:
$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ wget https://launchpad.net/pimagizer/trunk/0.4.2/+download/pimagizer_0.4.2-1_all.deb
$ sudo gdebi pimagizer_0.4.2-1_all.deb
Optional, to remove pimagizer from either Ubuntu, Debian or a derivative system, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove pimagizer
