Install Screencloud in Ubuntu 16.04

One of my favorite applications for taking screen shots in Ubuntu is Screecloud unfortunately there's no version available for Ubuntu 16.04.

Searching in a github wiki, I found a discussion on running Screencloud at our own "risk" in Ubuntu 16.04.

If you want to read the thread in github: https://github.com/olav-st/screencloud/issues/204


Steps for installing Screencloud at your own "risk" Ubuntu 16.04

  • Download libqtmultimediakit1
  • We need to modify our source list
    • sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
    •  We add the following line to the end of the file
      • deb http://cz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu wily main universe
  • We install screencloud
    •   sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/olav-st/xUbuntu_15.10/ /' >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/screencloud.list"
    • sudo apt-get update
    • sudo apt-get install screencloud
  •  We just open a console and type screencloud and the application will begin running.
  •  We remove from the source list the deb file we added in step 2
    • sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Small tips

Be sure that screencloud is selected as the applications that begin running when you start you Ubuntu session
