Multiple instances of gThumb on Linux Mint 17

In howto on Mar 15, 2016 by theoryl Tagged: , , , ,

gThumb is my favorite image viewer. However, gThumb 3.2.7 (which comes with Linux Mint 17) has a bug where only one instance of gThumb is allowed. See this bug report. The suggested solution is to use gThumb 3.2.8 which can be grabbed from the Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) repository.

So, download the .deb files from:
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/utopic/amd64/libexiv2-13/0.24-2ubuntu1
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/utopic/amd64/gthumb/3:3.3.1.is.3.2.8-0ubuntu1build1
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/utopic/amd64/gthumb-data/3:3.3.1.is.3.2.8-0ubuntu1build1

Then, install them:

sudo dpkg -i libexiv2-13_0.24-2ubuntu1_amd64.deb gthumb_3.3.1.is.3.2.8-0ubuntu1build1_amd64.deb gthumb-data_3.3.1.is.3.2.8-0ubuntu1build1_all.deb 

Problem solved. =)

  1. Yay! Cheers for this, gthumb has some pretty bad design choices in recent years… but it’s still the best of the bunch imho.
