Debian / Ubuntu
Snipline Desktop supports Debian based Linux systems. This includes Ubuntu, Mint, Elementary OS and more.
1 sudo apt-get install gdebi
Right click the
.deb file and click Open in GDebi Package Installer
Install the .deb with dpkg (Use sudo if needed) from the downloads page
1 sudo dpkg -i snipline_0.6.6_amd64.deb
Install the package
1 sudo apt-get install -f
The app should now appear in your start menu or when searched.
You can also run the application from the command-line
1 2 cd /usr/lib/snipline ./Snipline
Currently only .deb files are available. Because of this updates have to be done manually.
Adding a Desktop shortcut
If it doesn't already exist, create
/usr/share/applications/snipline.desktop with the following content
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 [Desktop Entry] Name=Snipline Comment=Snipline GenericName=snipline Exec=/usr/lib/snipline/Snipline --disable-gpu Icon=snipline Type=Application StartupNotify=true Categories=Utility;
Make sure to
chmod +x /usr/share/applications/snipline.desktop
If you're greeted with a blank screen on Debian try running this command instead
1 /usr/lib/snipline/Snipline --disable-gpu
If you're using the GUI installation do the following:
/usr/share/applications and right click
Change the Command property to
In the permissions tab make sure "Allow executing file as program" is checked.
You should then be able to run Snipline
