Upload pictures and videos to Gallery installations

Project description

===== What is this app? ===== gallery-uploader is a program that allows you to easily upload pictures to a remote Gallery ( installation. It is particularly suggested for use from Nautilus, the default (GNOME) filemanager.

Last version of gallery-uploader can always be found at

It currently supports only Gallery version 2 installations.

===== How do I install it? ===== There are two ways to install gallery-uploader:

1) Single-user, as Nautilus script: just move into the extracted folder and double-click “”. This will uninstall previous versions if detected.

2) System-wide, as standalone program: if you use Debian, or a Debian derivative, such as Ubuntu, just install the Debian package; otherwise, download and extract the tarball, then open a terminal into the extracted folder and run “sudo python install”. Notice this will install it also as a system-wide nautilus script: single users can enable it using for instance nautilus-scripts-manager (see )

3) Single-user, as standalone program: just open a terminal into the extracted folde and run “./gallery-uploader”. Do not try to install with “python” to private directories: it won’t work.

===== What are its requirements? =====

You need
  • Python (version 2.6 or higher),

  • python-xdg,

  • python-argparse (already present in Python 2.7),

  • pygtk (2.12 or later should work, though 2.14 is required for usage in standalone mode; the version of the gtk+ libraries must be 2.16 or later),

all preinstalled in many Linux installations, and

If python-gnomekeyring is present, passwords will be safely stored with GNOME Keyring.

Gallery-uploader was created to be used from Nautilus, GNOME’s default filemanager, but it is in no way tied to it: if you prefer, you can use it from shell, by giving the names of the images to load as arguments. If it doesn’t get any argument, it will open a small browser which can be used to select the desired pictures. This browser, which makes gallery-uploader a real standalone program, requires the additional dependence python-gnome in order to work.

===== Old configuration files =====

Until version 1.11, Gallery-uploader relied on another library: gup. Its configuration files may be left in a folder called “.gup” inside your home directory. The first time you run a newer version of Gallery-uploader, it will import them automatically. Afterwhile, if you do not use gup directly, you can safely delete that folder.

===== How to translate to my language? =====

You must have an account on . Then, visit

Assuming that your language doesn’t exist, click “Add a new translation” and upload the .po file for your language (which doesn’t have to necessarily contain translated strings already). This step will soon become unnecessary, but for the moment feel free to write me a line, and I’ll take care of it.

After that, you can click on the “edit” icon near to your language and start filling the fields.
