gpicsync on Ubuntu/Feisty

Saturday, April 28th, 2007

GPicSync is a very nice cross-platform tool to match up photos with GPS locations. However it requires a package that isn’t included by default by Ubuntu/Feisty.

1. Download GPicSync from http://code.google.com/p/gpicsync/

2. Unpack it: tar zxf Linux-GPicSync-0.91.tar.gz

3. Move to the directory it created: cd Linux-GPicSync-0.91

4. Set the GUI and command line versions of the program executable: chmod +x gpicsync-GUI.py gpicsync.py

5. Install the Ubuntu/Feisty package python-wxgtk2.8 which provides the python bindings for the wx library and the exiftool: sudo apt-get install python-wxgtk2.8 libimage-exiftool-perl

6. Run the program and start geotagging photos: ./gpicsync-GUI.py
