Like many others I wanted Shotwell for Lucid so I’ve created a PPA for it.
My PPA contains Shotwell 0.8.1 built for Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 LTS. I created the PPA because I run Lucid at home and wanted the new version of Shotwell. Sadly, Yorba aren’t going to provide a Lucid build of Shotwell 0.8.1 due to the reasons discussed in the following ticket:
As mentioned in the ticket above, there are versions of Shotwell 0.8.1 available for Lucid in other PPAs. However, those PPAs contain hundreds of packages. If you’re not that brave, like me, then hopefully my PPA provides what you need. I have built Shotwell 0.8.1 with minimal changes from the original Yorba source packages and not polluted my PPA with any unnecessary packages NOTE! My PPA has dependencies that are satisfied by the Yorba PPA, so you must also enable the Yorba PPA too.
To install Shotwell 0.8.1 on Lucid do the following:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:yorba/ppa sudo apt-add-repository ppa:flexiondotorg/shotwell sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install shotwell
