Unable to locate package clipgrab
The PPA removed packages for Ubuntu 13.04. Now it supports only Ubuntu 13.10, Ubuntu 12.10, Ubuntu 12.04 and their derivatives
Perfect, thank you!
I especially liked the advise to make the program executeable, I never dreamed of something like that…thanks mate.
Perfect, into mint 17.1
Thanks for easily understandable information, unlike most Linux “geeks” who seem to specialize in confusing newcomers with jargon! I have just installed ClipGrab using your information into Mint 18.1 I have just downloaded the update (clipgrab-3.6.4-hx6850-update.tar.bz2) It’s tar bz2 format, now I am confused how to deal with this. Any nice simple help?
