Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, QGifer is a simple software, that allows you to convert video files to GIF images. It also have some useful functions, like crop video, add text to images, apply filters and many more.
The downside is that you have to cut the part of the video you want to gif, but this can be easily done with some cli tools like ffmpeg, mencoder or avconv.
The latest version available is QGifer 2.1, which has been released a while ago.
In this article article I will show you how to install QGifer 2.1 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, 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 and other Ubuntu derivative systems.
