shotwell 0.18.1 Ubuntu 14.04

Yorba team has released an update of its photo organizer with important fixes. According to the changelog, the new release shotwell 0.18.1 fixed:

  • Fix Flickr publishing errors due to Flickr moving to HTTPs-only
  • Fix crash when updating photo data/time
  • Fix crash due to nested tag and changing sidebar selection
  • Corrected URLs to point to new pages


If you’re using Shotwell in Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 13.10 or other derivatives, you may consider upgrading it from Yorba’s PPA.

After making a backup, do below steps:

Press Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard to open the terminal. When it opens, run command to remove previous version:

sudo apt-get remove shotwell shotwell-common

Then add the Yorba’s PPA via:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yorba/ppa

Finally install shotwell after checking for updates:

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install shotwell
